Police have launched investigations into the death of a 50-year-old businessman who was found dead at his Karen home in Nairobi on Monday, January 9, 2023.

A police report seen by K24 Digital indicates that Francis Kiambi Kiriro was found dead in his bedroom with some foam beside his bed.

The deceased's wife Mary Waigwe Muthoni told the police that the couple had spent the previous night at Big Smoke Bar and Restaurant in Karen where they had a meeting and some drinks with a family advocate and a relative.

Muthoni disclosed that they had some domestic differences after she declined to be her husband’s guarantor in securing a Ksh2 billion loan he was seeking to start a business.

The couple returned home at around 9:00 pm and spent the night in separate bedrooms.

"They each spent the night in different rooms and the deceased never woke up since then but could be heard snoring throughout the day and night and had vomited in his bedroom," the report read in part.

"It was until today at around 0600hrs when she went to check on the deceased and she found him lying dead on his bed with some vomit beside the bed."

Confirmed dead

The family called a doctor from Karen Hospital who unfortunately confirmed the death at around 9:02 am.

The officers who visited the scene said the body had no visible injuries.

The body of the deceased was moved to Lee Funeral home for preservation and autopsy to establish his cause of death.

The businessman had previously vied for the Tharaka Nithi County senatorial seat but was unsuccessful.
