The late Fidel Odinga Nairobi, Kenya: The cause of Fidel Odingaâ€™s death is yet to be established. Tuesday, family and Government pathologists said preliminary examination on Fidelâ€™s remains could not conclusively show what killed him.
Samples collected from his body will thus have to be taken for laboratory analysis. “We call this examination toxicology and histology in the scientific language. We have taken a number of samples to establish cause of death. As of now, we have agreed nothing tangible was found to explain cause of death,” said family pathologist Dr Emily Rogena.
Senator James Orengo (Siaya), who was present throughout the autopsy, said it was a tedious process, which lasted the whole day. “This process started at 7.30am and has just been concluded now,” said Orengo, who spoke to the media at Lee Funeral Home at around 7pm.
He continued: ” Chief government pathologist Johannes Oduor was present and we have decided that the pathologist themselves inform Kenyans on the postmortem process.”
The autopsy report was expected Monday but the examination failed to take place as pathologists said they could only do it in natural light.
