The family of a 37-year-old man who is alleged to have been murdered in America is calling upon the government to intervene and investigate the circumstances surrounding their kin’s death. The family of Eric Chepkuto said they received the shocking news on 31st December 2013 at their home in Nakuru.

According to retired Kenyan ambassador to Sweden Micheal Sergon who is a family member, the family received news from other family members in us last weekend that Eric had gone missing before confirming that his body was found.

Eric is said to have lived in the state of Atlanta in Georgia since 1998 when he left Kenya for studies and had currently secured a temporary job before finalising his plans to return to Kenya in April this year.

voice for Diaspora killings...

This seems to be a frequent occurrences of killing Diaspora here in America.

Please can we come together  with one voice and physical involve our Kenyan Ambassador into inquiring to the states government on motive of those killings which most of them goes on for longer without clear findings or with unknown suspects.

That would be me or you. Therefore, let's VOICE our ideas to assist each other in this land of many issues.

Rest in Peace brother, rest in peace  Eric Chepkuto !!!

Mateso, If you think one VOICE will help diasporans in America, mateso itakuzidia. There is no unity in America unless it is tribal, funeral or parting. Also, envy, jealous, misleads, misuses and hatred within diasporans have been the orders of the day for diasporans and this leads to isolations for which I believe the only SOLUTION is reliance on GOD's VOICE and protection (Fellow diasporans will forsake you and even do you harm, but GOD will never forsake or harm you).

Amen Safi wa Safi. At times I tend to belief that you can be a super human when your comments have a Godly flavor. You are prtially right oncthat. Why partially? Beacause its partially tribal, partly social class and partially religious. Tribal? Most Kenyans will never attend events because my tribe is unknown and uncommon. Social class? Most of our people attend or participate on events that has to do with the elites, the educated, the haves, the famous etc. Religious? If you are not saved, born again, righteous...then you better be, you will learn it too late that that you have been a number or their network all along. For Mateso, embassies are created to serve leaders when they visit not you and me.

@IdaVethi: You and Safi wa Safi are spot on. At the risk of shamelessly plugging my book, Ch. 11 titled "My Brother's Keeper" and Ch. 16 titled "Final Thoughts" capture the very essence of what you 2 are talking about...sadly, but oh so true... The book btw is titled "WUODA: My journey from Kenya to these United States"
