Alex Wafula, Ernest Wafula’s elder brother: Rubbishes suicide

Speaking to Bungoma Governor while referring to a report that claimed Ernest had committed suicide, displayed his bitterness saying: “Its a sad day indeed, I knew Ernest at my first term as a Governor. He was dedicated and promising and that’s why I fast tracked his employment… I also wish to encourage anyone esp the youth who have pressing issues not to bottle up them up. I have lost a young, promising and determined friend and employee. May he Rest in Peace”

Wafula’s body is currently at Kitale morgue
