Even after his very emotional burial Sergent Kipyegon Kenei is still making headlines.

Kenei was murdered in cold blood and his body discovered in his Imara Daima house.

DCI investigators are working a round the clock to ensure that the perpetrators of the crime are brought to book.

Meanwhile, one of Kenei's friends has spoken out about their relationship.

The king of bullfighting and politician Boni Khalwale has revealed that his friendship with Kenei spans 10 years.

"Many people assume I know Kenei through the DP who is my friend. But I knew Kenei even before Ruto met him. I first met him in 2009 when he was attached to then Cabinet Minister Soita Shitanda. Sitanda loved to interact with his people so on many country side visits, his bodyguards including Kenei would be in my car as we trailed him."


"The relationship over the years became a personal friendship that if I open my phone here, the last text he sent me he told me - Governor I dreamt about you last night. That is why we are very interested in finding out what happened."
