“Everyone else managed to flee the scene after the tractor hit a hive where the bees were living and they started attacking people,” said Mr Ojiwa who contested for the Mathare parliamentary seat on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.

He said his grandmother died at a hospital in Siaya County, where she had been admitted.

Mr Ojiwa said the incident took place just three weeks after the family buried her grandmother’s son who died while in the US.

His body stayed in the US for two months as the family sought for funds to ferry the body back to Kenya.

During his burial the family said that it was seeking financial support in order to ensure that the body is brought to the country.

It was later flown to Kisumu County and he was laid to rest in his home in Siaya County.

“My grandmother has just gone a few weeks after our uncle also died. The two have been a great pillar in the family and also ensured that things worked out for everyone,” Mr Ojiwa said, adding that the two deaths had broken the family into pieces.
