Siaya Senator Oburu Odinga has urged Joel Rabuku, the son of the late Chief of Defence Forces Francis Ogolla, to allow for thorough investigations into the military plane crash that tragically claimed 10 lives.

Odinga stressed the importance of allowing the government to conduct its promised investigations. He expressed the concerns of many leaders from the region who have faced untimely deaths, highlighting the need for transparency regarding General Ogolla’s passing.

“We want to uncover the truth. We have lost many leaders in our area under suspicious circumstances, and we are cautious. We want to know what led to our son’s death. So, young man, please be patient with us. We want the truth. When Robert Ouko died, the authorities convinced the family to dismiss those asking questions. So, young man, please be patient and allow the investigators to do their job,” Oburu said.

Oburu also conveyed former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s condolences, explaining that he could not attend the burial as he is currently out of the country. General Ogolla lost his life in a military plane crash in the Kaben area of Elgeyo-Marakwet county, alongside nine other KDF officials on Thursday, April 18.

During the memorial service held on Friday, Joel encouraged mourners to celebrate his father’s life rather than mourn his passing. He shared that his father had always prepared the family for his eventual departure. Joel urged attendees to embrace joy, noting his father’s cheerful nature and emphasizing that General Ogolla would have wanted people to be happy.

“I see many sad faces, but General would be wondering why, especially since he prepared us for this day for a long time. You should be a bit happier because we as a family are leaning on his faith, our faith, and that of Jesus Christ, which was his cornerstone for everything,” Rabuku said.

General Ogolla was laid to rest today at his family home in Mor, Alego Usonga, Siaya County, in accordance with his wish to be buried within three days.
