Saturday, July 27, 2019- Ikolomani MP, Bernard Shinali, is mourning the death of his first born son, Chris Masaka, who died in the in the US on Friday.
The 35-year old, who worked with the US Marine, died in a swimming pool in Arizona State while holidaying with his family.
According to reports, the late Masika drowned while trying to save a child.
However, the family has refused to buy that claim given that he was a US marine and was sufficiently trained as a life-saver.
“We received the news about his death from a relative who works with him in the Navy.
Masaka stays and works in Illinois State but had travelled to Arizona for a holiday with his family when he met his sudden death,” Mr Robert Ayisi, the elder brother to Hon Shinali and family spokesman said.
“It is not clear how a person who trained to survive in difficult situations like the US marine could drown in a swimming pool. Humanity will remember the young man for his bravery because he died saving a life,” said Mr. Washiali.
The family has engaged the Kenyan envoys in the New York and Washington cities to get more details of about the death.
