KTN news anchor Mary Kilobi has lost her elder brother, Emmanuel Weyusia.
Weyusia, a teacher at Thika High School, died on Tuesday night (October 8) after he was allegedly fatally shot in the abdomen by gangsters at his home in Thika, Kiambu County.
Attempts to rescue Weyusia’s life by taking him to Thika Level 5 Hospital bore no fruit, as he succumbed to his injuries on the way to the medical facility.
Announcing her brother’s death on Facebook on Wednesday, Mary Kilobi said: “I can’t believe this hot brother of mine, Emmanuel Weyusia has gone to be with the Lord. Marsh we’ve lost you to some cruel people who shot you.
“Marsh, you will forever be my big brother; our very protective bro; my mama’s first born. How do I say RIP? God, it may not be well with me now because of how I feel, but I still hold on to you for comfort. Even though you have allowed this pain to come my way, You are still my God,” said Kilobi.
It is alleged that the killers had raided the apartment in which Weyusia lived in in a bid to steal from the occupants.
Police say they have launched investigations into the incident.
