Omondi said that from the hospital, Onyango was taken home on a Monday where a private doctor was called to attend to him.


He said that his brother had small spots on his skin body and complained of stomachaches.


Onyango was later rushed to St Jairus Hospital where he died after developing breathing complications at 2am.

Omondi described his brother as outgoing and forgiving.


“He was a good person, he would forgive very quickly,” he said.
