Victor Mwangi was celebrating his 25th birthday in Kisaju, Kajiado County when he met his death.
Together with his big brother, Fred Mureithi, 30, and their two cousins Mike George, 29, and Nicholas Musa, 28, they were lynched by angry villagers after allegedly mistaking them for cattle thieves.
The mastermind of the brutal attack was arrested as the four were laid this past week.
Brothers; Victor and Fred were laid to rest yesterday at their Mayu village home in Nyandarua county.
Their mother, Lucy Wanjiru, read a moving tribute to her two sons.
She said, "Victor, we spoke about your 25th birthday celebration without bearing in mind how death was following you. Almost every day urging you to be extra careful and to pray for protection and safety.
Together with aunty Rona in the UK who shares a birthday with you, we sent you pictures and some financial support and wished you a happy birthday."
Wanjiru narrated the last conversation she had with Victor.
"You said, 'My beautiful mum, mrembo, nakupenda sana, nitafanya birthday yangu vizuri na uniombee' (I love you so much mum, I will have a great birthday celebration, pray for me.). You were very responsible and as a mother, I was always satisfied with how you did your things accurately and perfectly."
She continued, "Victor though sometimes I would be irritated with you, you were always remorseful and you made me proud. I was always pleased with you. I trusted both of you.
You meet your thoughtless, senseless, killers and my spirit kept telling me something was not right. I involved the pastor my friends in prayers and fasting I also requested those pastors to pray with the boy at home. Incidentally, the day and the time was not scheduled to happen, it was the same day I received the sad news of your demise.
If tears could bring you back, I have wept for you. If words would bring you back I have tried, even words cannot express the loneliness and the painful experience, oh God! My heart is broken.
This load is too heavy. Time is a healer, I'm not sure that is true. There is no single time that will go by, my sons, that I will not cry for you. You have gone too soon but I will forever miss you and cherish you. I love you, son, continue watching over me.
Rest in peace with the angels till we meet again. Freddie and Victor, nawapenda sana."
