He shared a poignant recollection of the night Oyier suffered a stroke, emphasizing Oyier’s resilience and determination in the face of adversity.

“My brother looked after me when I was sick. You don’t get a brother and sister to hire a chef to cook food that’s good for the brain and rearrange your whole life.

Paul emotionally recalled how his late brother battled stroke which ultimately caused his death.

“I was Mike’s first responder. We were alone in the house, he was asleep, and at about 2am I got a call. When I heard the phone and looked over, it was Mike and I couldn’t understand what he was saying.

“He was speaking gibberish and I rushed over. I saw my brother and the signs were that he had had a stroke. Michael fought to the end. He told me how to take care of him at that moment. He fought to the end. We did our best,” he said.

Michael Oyier will be buried on 3 May 2024 at his home in Kanyada Katuma, Homa Bay County.
