Hunt For Justice: Family Of Missing Blogger Bogonko Bosire Seeks Answers To His 2013 Disappearance

 The family of missing journalist and blogger Bogonko Bosire still clings to the hope that their son is alive and coming home, 8 years after his mysterious disappearance.

 The disappearance of their parent who was the breadwinner has caused the family untold pain with recent events where one of his brothers allegedly took his own life, only serving to compound their misery.

 Bogonko disappeared in September 2013 and has not been found since, the family's efforts to find him having been unsuccessful.

 But a recent tweet from Bogonko's Twitter account in 2020 rekindled his family's memories and hope that their son is alive and well.

 Esther Bosire, Bogonko's mother, said: "Tangu 2013 hatujamuona, tumemuulizia, tunawasihi tusaidiwe kujua mahali aliko, tunaendelea kuuliza ikiwa ako hai na ameskia ati tunamtafuta, tafadhali ajitokeze. Mzee ni mgonjwa, memory alipoteza kwa sababu ya kufikiia juu ya huyu kijana.

 The eight-year wait has left the family of 7 devastated. Bogonko was the breadwinner, the family says he was generous and instrumental in raising his siblings.

 Elkanah Bosire, his brother, said, “Kupotea kwa ndugu yangu umeleta madhara kwa hii familia, amefunza kutoka dada yetu mkubwa mpaka kitindamimba… yeye ndiye alikuwa tout, mpaka shamba yenye tunakaa yeye ndio alinunulia mama kama zawadi.

 Videlis Kiago, a close relative, chimed in, "Hi eight years later life imekuwa delicate kwa sababu mimi personally alikuwa ananiuliza nataka kufanya nini."

 The family suffered another blow this week when Bogonko's brother Joshua Bosire took his own life.

 They attribute this to the brother's mysterious disappearance, coupled with the deceased's new role of caring for his ailing father who forced him out of his job.

 As they rest their loved one, the family clings to the hope that their son, brother and friend, who many knew as a journalist and owner of the now defunct Jackal News blog, will resurface.
