One of the followers of the suspected Kilifi cult leader Paul Mackenzie has died while two others have been admitted to hospital in critical condition.

The State has told the court that Joseph Juma Buyuka died while receiving treatment at the Malindi hospital.

“We suspect the deceased died from complications associated with a hunger strike. We can only await for post-mortem to ascertain the cause of death,” said Senior Prosecution Counsel Jami Yamina.

The prosecutor said that the state is waiting for the report before producing it in court as evidence as the suspects are remanded in custody pursuant to a directive from the court.

Buyuka was among the 30 Mackenzie followers who were relocated to prison after staging a hunger strike while in police custody.

The court heard that the deceased was taken to the Malindi hospital, from Malindi GK prison after his health deteriorated, where he died while undergoing treatment.
