Nakuru family demand justice over their late son who served in DP’s office

The family of the late John Kipyegon Kenei-an AP officer who was attached to Deputy President are still coming to term with the death of their son.

Addressing media on Friday at their home in Solai, Nakuru County, the family is now pointing accusing finger on government over what befell their son and how they delivered the news to the press without informing the family first.

They say it was wrong for the government to convey the news to the press before informing the family or relatives of the deceased what had transpired.

According to the late Officer’s father John Chesang’, his son had left his home in Solai on Sunday and he was in good health.

The father who could not hide his emotions narrates how he was shocked on Thursday to hear news about his son whom he had had a conversation with on Sunday before he (late son) left for Nairobi.

Chesang is now calling on government to expedite investigation into the alleged suicide.

The father adds that he does not whatsoever believe that his son killed himself and that something must have happened to him ending his 13 years’ service to the country.

“We are still in shock and what we want is for the government to expedite the investigation into the matter” said Chesang’.

Similar sentiments echoed by the deceased’s brother Emmanuel Kenei.

Emmanuel recalls the final moments with his brother on Sunday.

He says “Kipyegon arrived home on Friday and took children for midterm from Baringo and left on Sunday but his phone went out of reach on Tuesday but we only thought he was on busy assignment only to get the shocking news”.

According to Emmanuel, the government should do investigations and ensure it unwind any hidden information in case there is someone who was involved on the death of their brother.
