Lawyer Assa Nyakundi and his second son identified as Noah are allegedly not in speaking terms.

According to an interview the lawyer recently had with Nation, his son Noah has not been to see him since he was hospitalized at the Nairobi Hospital.

In addition, it is alleged that Noah insisted on having his brother buried at Lang'ata Cemetry as opposed to the family home due to his differences with his father.


The lawyer was admitted in hospital soon after the incident where his son Joseph lost his life. Nyakundi is allegedly suffering from high blood pressure.

The city lawyer also spoke on his late son saying that the two of them were close and he is despondent that nothing can be done to bring him back.

"Both of us were Arsenal fans and I was trying to teach him some golf. We were preparing to take him abroad to further his studies.

"If they take me to prison it will not be worse than losing my son in the way it happened," he stated.


He, however, refused to give further comments on what happened when he shot his son saying that the case is in court and the truth will be determined.
