Billionaire businessman Jeremiah Kiereini's son Githae was found dead at his Karen home today.

His body was discovered by a worker who called police. The 42-year-old was alone in the house.

"The body had no visible injuries and foul play is not suspected at this stage," a police officer said.

A postmortem will be conducted at the Lee Funeral Home to ascertain the cause of death.

Githae worked at Standard Chartered Bank after leaving university and later moved to NIC. He also worked at CFC Stanbic and Liberty Bank.

Githae's brother, Mburu, was found dead in his house four years ago after a debilitating illness. He had been working at Barclays Bank.

Githae and Mburu's brother, Douglas, works in the banking industry.

Kiereini has extensive investments in insurance and other businesses.
