“Kanene ni wa Kenya mzima si wangu pekee nimelia sana mpaka saa hii.” A grief-stricken Josephine said. (Kanene belonged to all of us and I have not stopped crying since I learnt of his passing.)

She also revealed to NTV that when Kenene was around they never lacked anything. “Amesaidia watoto wangu kwa kila kitu.Hakuna kitu tumenunua hata siku moja. Nimetumiwa pesa kutoka kila kona hakuna pesa nimetoa kutoka kwa mfuko wangu. Hata M-Pesa ni pesa ya Kanene nilikuwa natoa.” (He helped his family in all ways possible, we never had to reach into our pockets for anything. He has sent me money from all areas, I never lacked. Even if it was an M-Pesa message I knew it was from Kanene.)

“Mimi nasikia uchungu sana. Sasa tutatoa mtu mwingine kama Kenene wapi?” She cried. (I am in so much pain, where will we get another person like Kenene?)
