Former Youth Enterprise and Development Fund board Chairman Bruce Odhiambo has passed on.
Odhiambo died last evening (Monday) while undergoing treatment at the Nairobi Hospital after he suffered a massive heart attack last Saturday.
Bruce Odhiambo who is an accomplished music producer at Johari Clef has been unwell since October when he went to India for treatment but he developed a lot of complications upon his return in November.
“His blood pressure has never stabilised, this really affected the functioning of the pacemaker and they couldn't do dialysis because his heart was quite weak. On Saturday morning at 4am, he suffered a massive cardiac arrest,” friends say.
Odhiambo was admitted to hospital during Christmas after his blood pressure went too low. His unstable BP affected the functioning of his pacemaker.
The late, Bruce Odhiambo was the fourth chairperson of the Youth Enterprise Development Fund since its inception in 2006. He resigned from his position so as to facilitate the investigations into the Youth Fund scandal in 2016.
