While making the news of his demise, Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua said Kabaka had died due to a stroke arising from a blood clot that has been bothering him for a while.
The Senator was admitted to the hospital on Friday morning after a date with Esther Nthenya Muli, a 45-year-old teacher from Makueni.
Nthenya was arrested but later released after toxicological tests revealed that the first time lawmaker had not been poisoned as earlier thought.
