In Logiri village, Nambale, one family mourns the death of their son, Paul Nyongesa, 27, who was fatally shot during clashes between Gen Z protesters and anti-riot police in Nyeri.

Nyongesa had left his home in search of better opportunities in a distant county to support his humble parents and three young children. By day, he worked in a hotel, and by night, he served as a security guard, as per NTV Kenya’s report.

“He used to support us with the little he earned. Now, he has left behind three children. I have nothing. I do not know how I will take care of the children,” said his grieving mother.

According to his family, they received the devastating news of their son’s death through a friend. His father has not been able to travel to see Nyonges’s body, which remains in the morgue.

The family is now struggling with funeral arrangements but faces financial constraints that prevent them from bringing Nyongesa’s body home.

They are appealing to the public for assistance to bring him back and give him a dignified burial, a gesture they are currently unable to afford on their own.

“I have not gone to see my son and cannot even tell what he looks like. I am pleading with the county government and well-wishers to help me bring his body home for burial,” he appealed.
