Eston Barack Mbaja, the younger brother of the Late Minister of Foreign Affairs, Robert Ouko, has died aged 79.
Mbaja’s brother, Maurice Seda, told K24 Digital Tuesday that Barack died on Monday, August 17 while receiving treatment at a United States of America (USA) hospital.
“His wife and children, who live with him in the US, took him to hospital last week after he suffered a stroke,” said Seda, adding: “Sadly, my brother succumbed to the stroke yesterday (Monday, August 17).”
“Plans are underway to have his body flown to Kenya for burial. He will be laid to rest in Nyahera, Kisumu West Sub-County.”
Mbaja, who is survived by a wife and four children, lived in Tacoma, a mid-sized urban port city and the county seat of Pierce County, Washington.
