  1. This is a sad news indeed for his family and the people of his contituency, as well as the nation as a whole.

    On that note, I wish to share my condolences to his family, relatives, friends people who are close to him. May his soul rest in peace.

    Just out of personal interest, will a post-morteim be carried to determine the cause of the death? I am not trying to suggest that his untimely is suspicious but just so that the public is aware that he has died through natural causes or if there are some medical explanations behind it.
