Rally driver Asad Khan passed away on Sunday, December 19, after battling for his life at the High Dependency Unit at the Avenue Hospital.
Asad's brother Adil confirmed his brother's demise stating that the family spent the last hours comforting the deceased.
“Yes, my brother Asad has finally left us. We had been at his bedside ever since he was admitted to the hospital with stab wounds. It is really sad,” he revealed.
He added that his brother also lost a lot of blood, one of the major contributing factors to his death.
“My brother was transfused 10 pints of blood at Avenue Hospital. We moved him from Nairobi Hospital to get blood group A-positive,” Adil recalled.
The deceased’s family members had earlier on Wednesday, December 14, pleaded with members of the public for blood donation, lamenting that Asad was in critical condition.
“We wish to request all friends and well-wishers to kindly keep him in your prayers.
"The hospital team at Avenue hospital ICU require 5 pints of blood group A+ or O+ for his ongoing treatment,” read the statement from the family.
Rally driver, Maxine Wahome, was arrested on Monday, December 12, in connection to Asad's hospitalisation before she was released on a Ksh100,000 cash bail.
She was ordered to report to Kilimani Police Station every week to assist police with investigating the case.
According to Adil, his brother was injured by the rally star, on Jamhuri Day after an altercation ensued between the two.
He alleged that his brother was devoted to ensuring Wahome succeeds as a rally driver, from training and nurturing her to fixing her cars.
“It is my brother who trained Maxine and developed her talent,” Adil lamented adding that the deceased also played a pivotal role in aiding the accused's family.
