Wiper Democratic Movement leader Kalonzo Musyoka on Sunday 30 May 2021 revealed details about the last conversation he had with the late former Kibwezi Member of Parliament Kalembe Ndile.
While speaking at Lee Funeral Home, Kalonzo revealed that the late legislature called him severally on Saturday night and he was trying to get admitted to a hospital in Nairobi.
“He informed me that they had tried getting admitted at a local hospital and was later admitted at Nairobi Hospital,” he disclosed.
Kalonzo went on to thank the doctors for doing all they could to save Kalembe Ndile’s life while confirming that his demise was not related to any COVID-19 complications.
Reports about the former Tourism and Wildlife Assistant Minister surfaced on Sunday morning indicating that the vocal politician and businessman passed away while receiving treatment at the Nairobi Hospital.
His family disclosed that had been battling a long illness at the city hospital while his body was taken to Lee Funeral Home as funeral arrangements kicked off.
The family said that the late politician had been admitted to the hospital two weeks ago, but his health deteriorated later and he was taken back to the hospital.
Kalembe ventured into politics clinching the Kibwezi parliamentary seat in the 2002 elections. He also served as the Assistant Minister for Wildlife in the National Alliance Rainbow Coalition (NARC) government.
He also formed The Independent Party (TIP) party late on and joined the Jubilee coalition.
However, he lamented over being sidelined by the party after his name was scraped off the list for consideration for the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) seat.
In 2015, he was appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta to serve at the board of the Tana Athi Waterworks where he served for three years.
In September 2017, Ndile was involved in the accident, after his vehicle collided head-on with another car at Devki area along the Nairobi-Mombasa highway that left his right thigh broken.
In April, he had expressed his interest in replacing Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura as the People Living with Disability representative in Parliament following his car accident.
Kalembe Ndile ventured into the construction industry selling sand and ballast after leaving politics. He died at the age of 57.
