Former State House Comptroller Abraham Kiptanui is dead.
Kiptanui served under President Daniel Moi until his retirement in 1996. He had been receiving treatment at The Nairobi Hospital for the last few weeks.
The nature of his illness has not disclosed by family. Kiptanui was succeeded by Franklin Bett in the State House position.
A week ago, State House mistakenly tweeted a condolence message for Kiptanui. The message was promptly deleted.
