SAD: Double Tragedy for Family of Missing Journalist Bogonko Bosire

The family of missing journalist Bogonko Bosire has suffered another blow after his father, Mr David Bosire, died on Monday afternoon. This comes hardly a month after Bogonko's younger brother, Joshua Bosire, died by suicide.

According to Douglas Kimaiga Obiria, who is Bogonko's cousin, Mr Bosire died at his home in Kuresoi North.

"Bogonko's father died in his sleep on Monday afternoon. He had been ailing for a long time and the sickness is attributed to the disappearance of his son years ago. He developed a mental problem after he searched for his missing son in vain," said Mr Obiria.

The family says Mr Bosire had slipped into depression at some point.

On January 15 this year, Bogonko's brother Joshua breathed his last after ingesting a toxic substance. According to his sister Winnie, her younger brother had shown signs of depression and had began to drink excessively.

According to the family, the stress arising from Bogonko’s disappearance, together with the increased responsibility of taking care of his old parents, took a toll on Joshua.
