Addressing mourners Salasya expressed sadness over the death of the vibrant TikToker, with the politician eulogizing him as a big inspiration to the young generation.

"Chira amekua a very big inspiration to the young generation, na mkiangalia hapa hakuna mwanasiasa ata mmoja ambaye anaeza kuja. The young generation nimeona hapa leo ata sijaamini macho yangu na ni kwa sababu ya influence ambayo ndugu yangu alikua nayo."

Salasya acknowledged being an admirer of Chira, further commending Chira's command of the English language and noting he had gained valuable insights from Chira's way of expression.

"I was to go to Mombasa, but I decided to postpone that to attend this burial. I am one of his close followers. He was an inspiration. He spoke good English, and I learned a lot from him, especially how he would express himself. That is why I had to be here. I liked how he was vocal and could express himself freely."
