Kenya’s government on Saturday announced the death of Interior Minister Joseph Nkaissery at a hospital in the capital Nairobi.

Nkaissery, 68, a retired army officer, had held the position of cabinet secretary for interior and coordination of national government since late 2014.

“It is with deep sorrow and shock that we announce the sudden passing on of Interior CS Retired General Joseph Nkaissery,” said a statement from Kenya’s State House.

It said Nkaissery died “at Karen Hospital in Nairobi a few hours after being admitted for a check-up” without providing further details on the cause of death.
