Mr Odinga told the mourners that the person who killed Mutinda can best be described as a murderer.

“When you kill a young boy who was born when we ushered in the new Constitution, then the best term for you is a murderer and you’re not supposed to be with people in the society,” said Mr Odinga.

An emotional Ms Violet Awino Otieno recalled how her son Mr Elvis Otieno went to the shop in the morning but was killed by police at Kariobangi roundabout in Eastlands.


Ms Celestine Apondi narrated how her sister Josephine Achieng, 25, was killed in Kibera when Nasa leaders led by Siaya Senator James Orengo visited to console residents who were brutalised by police the previous night.

“My sister was humble and was not a hooligan,” said Apondi.

Mr Joshua Onyango lost his brother Kennedy Owino, 36, a mechanic at Makina, Kibera, on the day Mr Odinga returned.

My brother was not violent at all,” said Mr Onyango. “He did not drink alcohol and he did not even attend the rally addressed by Mr Odinga in Kibera but was killed by police while at his work place.”

Ms Laureen Achieng fought back tears as she mourned the family’s breadwinner, her elder brother George Owino, 40. As they started their journey to Alego in Siaya County, she worried about his two children as their mother died two years ago.
