The family of Allan Makona the man who disrupted President Mwai Kibaki's burial ceremony claiming to be his grandson has said that his move to wail during the Kibaki's burial was because of his appreciation to the former head of state for bringing free education that gave him a chance to learn.

Allan was born in Kabusosi village, Tuuti/ Marakaru ward in Kanduyi constituency Bungoma county.

Speaking to the press at her home on Sunday, Concephetar Makona, mother said that his son left home in 2016 with his cousin after completing his secondary education at St. Stephens Sikusi boys high school.

"My son left home in 2016 after completing his secondary education in 2015 at Sikusi boys high school, he told me that he is going to look for a job," she said, adding that Allan scored a mean grade of C+ ( plus) in high school.

She added that her son was raised in a poor background after his father died in 2010.

"I have been suffering with my 8 kids since my husband died in 2010," she said, Allan is the lastborn in a family of eight.

Charles Ndumba, uncle told the star that Allan was a good boy throughout his entire school life and his behaviours at the statehouse and at the Nyayo stadium shocked the family asking the government to release him adding that the family has no money to bail him out.

"I take this humble chance to ask the government to forgive our son and release him from the cell," he said.

He added that Allan liked President Mwai Kibaki since his childhood and his death could have caused him (Allan) to wail in public the way he did.

"His mourning doesn't mean a lot it's evident that Allan wailed because of the emotions but nothing else let the government release him and allow him come back home," he said.
