Former Youth Fund Chairman Bruce Odhiambo is dead.

Odhiambo died on Tuesday morning while undergoing treatment for heart related comlpications at Nairobi Hospital.

Mr Odhiambo who was also an accomplished music producer at Johari Clef had been admitted at the Nairobi Hospital’s ICU unit after suffering a massive heart attack last Saturday.

In 2018 October, Odhiambo went to India to replace his pacemaker that had been implanted under the skin to help manage irregular heartbeats.

He returned to Kenya in November but his body developed more complications that led to his admission to hospital.

Celebrities and politicians alike have taken to social media platform twitter to eulogize the late Bruce Odhiambo.

“Very sad about the passing of my friend Bruce Odhiambo. In the last three months, he remained strong even as his sick heart failed him. It was sad to watch him suffer. I will cherish the many moments we spent together. We have lost a good man and one of the most creative minds.”wrote Dr. Alfred Mutua

The late Odhiambo was picked by Uhuru Kenyatta in 2014 to chair the Youth Fund Board  after the appointment of Gor Semelang’o was revoked.

He resigned two years later to pave way for investigations into the misappropriation of KSh 180 million.
