A man collapsed and died along Kimathi Street in the Nairobi central business district on Tuesday, causing panic among members of the public.
The man was a patient on his way to the Kenyatta National Hospital for an appointment with a doctor.
His cousin, a building contractor in the area, said he had been waiting for his sister.
“She is a businesswoman around here. They had told me to tag along,” he said.
Nairobi Sub-County Police Commissioner Mark Wanjala told the Nation that a police unit was dispatched as soon as they received a call about the incident.
Mr Wanjala said a postmortem will establish the cause of death.
“We do not want to speculate, especially as we navigate [the Covid-19] pandemic,” he said.
