Janet Khagali mother of Cedric Shivonje Isaac has denied that the stowaway who dropped from a KQ aircraft minutes before it landed in London was her son.
Sky News interviewed Khagali and her husband about their son and identified the stowaway as Paul Manyasi. The couple admitted that the shoes and bag belonged to their son.
But the story has now taken a new turn over the stowaway’s identity.
Speaking in an interview with Citizen TV, Khagali said,
‘I saw a big car coming into my compound and there were white men inside. One (a reporter) told me that ‘your son is dead’. I told him no but he showed me photos and even a bag, and he told me that he was popularly known as MCA. I refused to believe him and told him he wasn’t the one.
I was shocked. nikasema tumeongea na mtoto jioni sasa amekufa aje (I just talked to my son last evening how did he die?). Ni ya uwongo sio ya ukweli (That story is not true).
She said that the last time she set her eyes on her son was two years ago and he was a casual labourer Nairobi. She also revealed that in August, she was told that he had been remanded at industrial area remand.
Benson Kidavasi, Khagali’s neighbour told Citizen that they had no idea of who Paul Manyasi was.
The photos doing rounds online are very different from Cedric’s. They are two different people,’ he said.
