Kenol Political Chaos Victims Laid To Rest
Two young men who lost their lives in the Kenol event that Deputy President William Ruto was attending were laid to rest yesterday, Friday 16, 2020.
The service was attended by many young people who vowed not to be used by politicians again for their political gains.
The young woman and women also said that that they had learnt their lesson from the deaths of the 21-year old Christopher Kariuki and 15 year old Peter Mbothu.
“We will not be used again. There is no other day that we will find ourselves in such a situation. This boy died while young,” said Kariuki’s brother, Francis Kariuki.
“We were raised by my father here and he told me to take care of him and teach him how to fend for himself but the devil came in,” added Kariuki.
The bodies of the two young men were later interred in two different ceremonies in their individual ancestral homes of Munyu village in Thika and Ithanga village in Gatanga respectively.
It is unfortunate that none of the politicians who were present at the Kenol chaos showed up for the burial of the two young souls.
