08 March 2016, 08:22 John Kioko

Nairobi - The Nairobi Senator body guard, Bakari Tsuma who was killed on Saturday mid night by suspected thugs was laid to rest at his Mkongani home in Kwale on Monday.

His body arrived in Kwale under escort of Senator Mike Mbuvi rescue team accompanied by his work mates and colleagues from the police force in Nairobi.

Constable Bakari Tsuma was shot in the forehead and died while undergoing treatment at Nairobi Hospital on Saturday at his Mwiki residence area.

He is said to have been shot by three people, armed with an AK-47 rifle and pistols before stealing his Ceska pistol that had 12 bullets.

Emotion ran high during his burial which attracted leaders in the area and locals.

Nairobi senator Mike Mbuvi attended the burial ceremony accompanied by Kwale senator Juma Boy, Kwale Matatu association chairman Joseph Mutunga, Festus Mwaniki and Kwale county government chief of staff Mohamed Mwaduga among others.

The senator wondered how his guard died some months after his father died saying that something is fishy.

The deceased left two wives and three children which senator Mbuvi promised to support them until they are compensated by the national government.

“For now I will pay Sh30, 000 fee balance for a student at Waa girl’s secondary school and Sh17, 000 for his daughter in Nairobi school, I assist the family until we ensure they get all compensation required, “he said.

Sonko mourned the death of his body guard saying he was not just a body guard but more of a family member.

He assured the family that he will ensure two youths will be recruited in the oncoming police recruitment to replace the fallen soldier.

“What I want to appeal to the top officers in the police force to ensure that their insurance work because as it is now nothing of that sort is working. For my guard I had to pay a total of Sh1.2 million for hospital expenses,” he added.
