Byanyaima on Monday shared on her twitter handle that: ““My heart and prayers are with Akena’s family. Let justice be done. Matthew is my nephew. A tragedy for us too.”

Akena is said to have been shot at Game Stores parking lot and rushed to hospital where he died moments later.

At his death bed, Akena reportedly told his brother that he had been shot be Kanyamunyu and is lover Cynthia Munwangari who had driven him to the hospital.

He said in the process of reversing his car after withdrawing some money from an automated teller machine at the store, he knocked Kanyamunyu’s car.
