The circumstances surrounding Enock's untimely passing remained shrouded in mystery, as a neighbour who paid tribute to him during the eulogy mentioned that he had been rushed to the hospital for an undisclosed reason.

Kimathi, along with his fellow recruits, garnered widespread attention for their behavior, which drew criticism from both the public and the National Police Service bosses.

The emergence of a brief yet highly impactful viral video in 2021 featuring young General Service Unit (GSU) graduates issuing threats to civilians stirred significant outrage within the Kenyan online community.

The video depicted eight GSU soldiers confidently expressing their intentions to treat civilians harshly upon completing their training.

While mourning his death, several people maintained that his viral video was a result of rejoicing, and that people should not judge him.
