The son of Kenya’s main opposition leader, Raila Odinga, was yesterday found dead in his home near Nairobi, prompting a major police investigation and minor unrest in the capital.

Police said Fidel Odinga, 41, seen by political observers as a potential successor to his father, returned home on Saturday night after an evening out drinking with friends and was found dead in his bed yesterday.

“The death … is being treated as unexplained. We are investigating his final movements. A forensic pathologist has been called in and a post mortem will be conducted to establish the cause of death,” a Kenyan detective said.

Raila Odinga, a former prime minister, leads the opposition Coalition for Reforms and Democracy and is an outspoken critic of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government. Last month, he accused Kenyatta of turning Kenya into a dictatorship.AFP
