Family of killed schoolboy demands justice


The family of Irish Otieno Okoth – a teen who died after allegedly being assaulted in Kanyamfwa Secondary School in Kendu Bay, Rachuonyo North Sub County – has requested the police to speed up investigations into the matter.

Speaking to Citizen Digital over the phone, the father of deceased George Omego, said officers were taking too long to close the case.

“The Police have delayed in carrying out the investigations. My son died in a mysterious circumstance which requires urgent investigations, but the truth has not yet been revealed,’’ said the grieving father.

According to Omega his 17-year-old son was allegedly killed when three of his colleagues hit him on the head with blunt objects.

The family went on to narrate that the Form Three student came home complaining of back pain, and head injuries.

His grandmother rushed him to Homa Bay Referral Hospital, and he was later referred to Kisii Level Five Hospital for specialised treatment.

Okoth passed away while receiving treatment, and a postmortem exam conducted at Kisii level Five Hospital showed that the cause of death was a blood clot in his brain.

On Sunday, Homa Bay County Police boss, John Omusanga, assured the family that justice will be served.

“We will do in depth investigations before the punitive and legal measures will be taken against the culprits.’’
