Former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile died at the Nairobi hospital on Saturday night.
His family confirmed that the 57-Year-old succumbed after a long struggle with liver cirrhosis.
Kalembe Ndile’s body was moved to Lee Funeral Home on Sunday morning.
He has been receiving treatment at the facility for close to a week.
Last week, Kalembe had a phone conversation with some journalists from Machakos, informing them of his admission.
“Kalembe called me last week and told me that he wasn’t feeling well. He had been admitted at Nairobi Hospital, ” said Athiani FM reporter Regina Mutua.
The former TipTip party leader’s last public appearance was at a press conference in Athi River, Machakos County where he called for the unity of national political leaders.
He called upon Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to unite with his ODM counterpart Raila Odinga so that they form the next government in 2022.
ODM leader Raila Odinga has mourned Kalembe Ndile as a leader who was at the forefront in fighting for the less privileged.
“With great shock, I have learnt of the passing of former MP Hon Kalembe Ndile. The people of Kibwezi and our country have lost a charismatic leader with exceptional grassroots mobilization skills who also cared deeply for the underprivileged. May He Rest In Eternal Peace,” tweeted Raila.
Several other leaders have sent their condolences to Kalembe Ndile’s family.
