While addressing mourners, Katam described Jachiga as “a brilliant young man who apart from entertaining and educating people through music, helped reduce insecurity by creating job opportunities for others.”

“He played his part in ensuring there was security in the region. You know when someone creates jobs for several others, then the crime rate reduces since people will have what to eat.

He died at a very young age and we saw it wise to come and mourn with this family and also ask for forgiveness for what transpired during his burial,” said Katam.

In a separate story, TUKO.co.ke reported that Jachiga’s burial on Friday, June 12, was punctuated by running battles between mourners and police after the two factions failed to agree on when and how the deceased was to be buried.

Police lobbed teargas at hundreds of mourners who had accompanied the entourage in a move to enforce COVID-19 containment measures that discourage gatherings.

Katam pleaded with the mournes to forgive the law enforcers “for any wrong they might have committed” adding that it was never the intension of police to be at loggerheads with the public.

“We are sorry for any wrong that might have happened. We would love to live in a society where police and civilians coexist in harmony. However, sometimes due to the nature of our job, we end up clashing,” the OCPD added.
