It was a sad day as family and friends gathered at Lee Funeral home to view the body of Rex Kanyike Masai before proceeding to his final resting place in Kamuthanga Machakos county.

The burial was attended by many including the Nairobi county senator Edwin Sifuna. As the body left the funeral home, the crowd chanted ' justice for Rex'

Rex Kanyike succumbed to injuries sustained during the Occupy Parliament protests. He was shot and killed by police as the protests entered the night stretch. 

The Requiem mass for Rex Kanyike Masai was  held yesterday at ACK St. Stephen Jogoo road.

His mother's heartfelt feelings were conveyed in a moving tribute read by his young aunt during his memorial service.

The tribute captured the profound love and bond between a mother and her son, highlighting the deep pain and sorrow of losing a child so suddenly and violently.

Rex’s mother, Jilian, remained in a state of shock and grief, struggling to come to terms with the loss of her son.

Rex’s untimely death has also ignited calls for justice and accountability. The circumstances surrounding his death are a stark reminder of the urgent need for police reform and the protection of human rights during protests.

Condolences to the family and may his soul rest in peace.
