Kevin Kipyegon's uncle Stanley Bise said in an NTV exposé on Sunday, December 4, that his nephew made the request after realizing he had no chance of surviving.
On the grounds that they had attacked a team of officers patrolling the area, police shot and killed four suspects, including Kevin.
"Kevin begged them to kill him, insisting that if they were going to do it, they should at least do it next to his mother's grave. They executed him after granting the request "Bise declared.
The bereaved uncle maintained that the deceased and his older brother Dennis Kipchirchir were unarmed when they were taken from their home and killed.
He claimed that the people who attacked the police would have been outside and not in the homes of the lads, proving that they were innocent.
According to a pathologist's postmortem report, Kevin and Dennis suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the head and chest before passing away.
According to Kulungu's research, the four guys, who ranged in age from 16 to 23, had no chance of surviving because of the precise location of their entry and exit wounds.
Collins Kipkorir, one of the other suspects, passed away barely two days after his mother was laid to rest in Kericho County.
He was visiting his grandparents in Barut at the time of his cold-blooded murder in Dennis' home.
Justice for the four young men has been demanded by the local population. They demanded that the murdering police officers be prosecuted by the Independent Policing and Oversight Authority (IPOA).
