“I thought my son sold air tickets online. That is what he had told me when he left home in February. But now that he has been found dead, I am also shocked about what is it that made my son die the way he did. He had money. When he got the money you could see on his WhatsApp status he was in Mombasa, sometimes he was in an aeroplane. I asked him and he told me the money he has is usually commission from the business he was doing.”
