The late Joseph Ole Nkaissery is a Kenyan Politician and retired Military officer. He was an MP in the National Assembly of Kenya from 2002 to 2014 before he resigned to take up a cabinet position as Secretary for Internal Security and Coordination of National Government.
Nkaissery death at his Karen home on 8th July 2017 came as shock as he was lively the previous day. Before his death, he had joint dinner with relatives and friends before driving to his home in Karen. He had a busy day besides attending the Saba Saba prayers at Uhuru Park before he retired home.
Many theories were being thrown around as the possible cause of the death even as experts moved in to unravel what killed the former military general.
