Agnes Saiya, the area chief stormed into Kennedy’s house accompanied by a gang of about 20 maasai morans all armed with pistols, pangas, rungus and sticks. They beat up Kennedy demanding that he produce the chang’aa he has been hiding. There was no chang’aa in the house and his cries of help alerted the neighbours who came to his aide. They were also attacked by the morans. The chief then called police officers from Isinya police station requesting that Kennedy be brought in. A request the area OCS declined and he ordered that Kennedy be taken to a medical facility first. All the injured were taken to Galaxy hospital where they were not treated due to lack of funds. Kennedy passed away while at Galaxy.
