Together with fellow Ugandans Simon Wasike and Paulo Hassan, they had been stabbed in the fight along Juja Road, sustaining serious injuries.
The four were in a group of other Ugandans who are believed to have stabbed them over a woman.
The group was at a joint in the area when an argument started before a fight broke out among themselves, leading to the multiple stabbings on Sunday.
Police said the group was in Nairobi for business and had gone to a joint that Ugandans usually frequent.
According to the police, they were called to the scene and informed of the stabbings before following up and finding the victims in the hospital.
Police further added that they are yet to establish the motive of the incident as they also want to know the cause of the fight.
