The family of Nick Imudia, the late former Chief Executive of e-commerce giant Konga, has denied rumours that the Group CEO of D.light International committed suicide.

The family stated that investigations were still ongoing to determine the cause of his death, ruling out suicide.

In a statement denying claims that Imudia had contacted his brother and daughter with instructions before his death, the family said news of the one-time Konga CEO's death while the family was in the hospital struggling to resuscitate him was suspicious.

The family expressed displeasure over the "unprofessional manner" in which the media incorrectly reported Nick Imudia's death as suicide.

It said the deceased never called his brother in America with instructions on how to distribute his wealth or placed a call to his daughter with any specific instruction.

The family further said the deceased never showed any sign of stress and he was not diagnosed as depressed at any point.

“Nick Imudia, until his death was the Group CEO of D.light International with Headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, where he was residing. He managed the company’s worldwide operations from Nairobi. Nick was full of life and people who worked closely with him or met him in the last hours prior to the incident surrounding his death were shocked with the media attributing his death to ‘suicide’.

“At his prime age and the level of his achievements, people who knew Nick well are all shocked and do not accept the characterization of his death as suicide. Members of Nick’s family do request the media and the general public to allow them to grieve their loved one without any unfounded rumour of the circumstances surrounding his death,” the family stated.
