Kenyan comedian turned activist Eric Omondi has shared devastating news regarding Kennedy Onyango, the 12 Year old boy who lost his life after being shot during the anti-government protests in Rongai.

Eric Omondi Omondi shared a video together with Kennedy's mum Jocinter Anyango who was in a grieving state.

He revealed that they were on their way to Homabay for Burial but they came across a police roadblock and the body of Kennedy was taken away.

Eric Omondi urged the people responsible to return the body so that Kennedy's mum can bury him since she has already suffered enough.

"So we got to Homabay to bury the 12 year old Kennedy and just before getting to the homestead we found a police roadblock. They took the boy. Whoever is responsible please allow this woman to mourn in Peace allow her to bury her Son. She has suffered enough."

Kennedy's mum narrated the ordeal while appealing to the government to hand her back the son for burial.

“Yesterday I travelled with my son knowing I was coming to bury him. When someone dies and you bury them that is when you know you have buried them here. When we arrived in Mbita, the boy was taken away from us by the police, until now I have not seen my son again. Government, please help me bury my child," said the devastated mum.


Days ago, a man identified as Denis Okinyi laid a claim on the boy's body. He stated that he only learnt of his son's death on social media.

Denis said he and Kennedy's mum went separate ways in 2015 and he was left to raise the boy on his own in Suba until the mum took him to Nairobi in 2022.

He insisted that he wanted to be included in the burial plans adding that his wish was to bury his son in Suba where he grew up.

On the other hand, Kennedy's mum's current husband Michael Ouma Odero insisted that he is the boy's father, adding that  they would bury the boy in Homabay.

A postmortem examination of the body of 12-year-old Kennedy Onyango has revealed he was shot once on his shoulder.

Government pathologist Peter Ndegwa said Onyango died of severe hemorrhage.

"Kennedy Onyango's death was the result of severe hemorrhage and the nature of the bullet wound indicates that it was fired from a long range. This is contrary to reports that have been going round that Kennedy was shot eight times,” Dr Ndegwa said.
