Kenyan producer and former youth enterprise fund boss Bruce Odhiambo is Dead

News reaching us this Tuesday indicate that former youth enterprise and development fund boss Bruce Odhiambo has died.

Bruce who was a close buddy to President Uhuru Kenyatta reportedly passed away last night at around midnight after a spirited fight in hospital.

The legendary record producer was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit of a Nairobi hospital after his blood pressure hit extremely low levels.

Bruce Odhiambo is said to have developed heart complications after coming back from treatment in India in November 2018. He had flown to India last year October for a routine replacement of a pacemaker implanted under his skin to help manage irregular heartbeats.

“He developed lots of complications after he returned [to Kenya] in November… The body reacted to the new medication he was given and he got blisters on his hands and legs which became septic,” a source close to Mr Odhiambo was quoted.

“On Christmas Day, his BP went too low so he had to be rushed to the ICU and he was also kept in seclusion for the wounds to be treated well… His BP has never stabilised thus really affected the functioning of the pacemaker and they couldn’t do dialysis coz his heart was quite weak.

“On Saturday morning 4 am, he suffered a massive cardiac arrest and he had to be put on full life support… His family had to be called in for counseling and prayers too.”
