A communication officer of Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi was on Friday, August 6, brutally killed on her way home
Peter Ochieng, popularly known as Storm, was murdered in cold blood after leaving a drinking joint in Bungoma Town where he was with the MP.
MP Wamunyinyi confirmed to K24 Digital that he was with his communication officer hours to his death.
According to Wamunyinyi, Storm left him for home and was thereafter informed by a police officer that his communications aid had been injured.
Upon rushing to the scene, they found him with deep cuts on the head and hands.
"Storm said he is leaving and my PA Sebastian paid the Boda Boda guy via Mpesa and they left together. As I was heading home, I was called by a police officer who informed me that my communications officer is badly injured. I went to the scene only to find the innocent boy with deep cuts on the head and hand,” said Wamunyinyi.
According to Storm’s cousin Andrew Munyagwa, he first heard of the tragedy through Boda Boda riders who he heard saying a man had been brutally cut around the area they reside.
“I heard people saying someone has been cut and I started walking to the road to know who the person was. I met a police officer who told me to go to the scene and help identify the victim. When I reached there, I found it is Storm. I am yet to believe, it is very sad,” Munyagwa narrated.
The MP has asked investigating officers to take the matter seriously and bring to book those behind the heinous act.
He blamed his death on Ford Kenya party politics where he is embroiled in protracted leadership wrangles with Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula.
“We must have a proper investigation on this case. Those involved in the murder case must be brought to book. We have leads. The Boda Boda who was to take storm home we have his contacts because he was paid through Mpesa. I am suspecting that his death must have been caused by ongoing politics in Ford Kenya. Police must get to the root bottom of the matter,” he said.
The MP sent his condolences to the family and pledged to help the family in giving Storm a befitting send-off.
Storm is a renowned singer who shot to the limelight through his song dubbed brikicho.
His remains were taken to Bungoma Referral Morgue pending investigations even as police commence investigations.
