Speaking to The Standard, Casmir Nyabuto, an elder brother to Bundi, said that his brother’s two sons who survived the accident are currently recuperating at the Coast General Hospital.

“Even as we mourn my brother, his wife and their three children, we are grateful to God for saving the lives of my two young nephews who are currently in hospital and responding well to treatment,” said Nyabuto.

The bodies of the deceased were transported to Kisii on Thursday, January 6, 2021, for an overnight stay, after a requiem at St Francis of Assisi Customs Parish in Nyali, Mombasa.

“Bundi was our last born brother, he has done so much for our family. He was the one who took us to Mombasa where we worked in his company... it’s so unfortunate that their journey home turned tragic,” said Nyabuto.
