Jamleck Mwanza: Teenager Injured During Azimio Protests Succumbs To Injuries

A 19-year-old boy who was hospitalized with head injuries sustained during the Azimo la Umoja anti-government protests has succumbed.

Jamleck Mwanza died from a brain hemorrhage at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) in Nairobi where he was receiving treatment.

He sustained the injuries during the anti-government demonstrations on Thursday, March 30, 2023.

Mwanza’s parents told the media that their son had gone missing for days before they found him at KNH on Saturday, April 1.

“I am saddened because he was my first born and I was working hard so that he can go to school,” Mwanza’s mother said.

The mother called on the government and the Opposition to hold talks to avoid street protests, which claimed the life of her son.

“I wish politicians would sit down and talk instead of going to the streets because many people get hurt and some are children.”

The family is working to cover the medical bills as they await a postmortem to be conducted on the body.
