David Chege, the young man who was shot dead outside parliament by a rogue police officer during the peaceful anti-finance bill, has been laid to rest at his parents' Turiru village home in Gatundu.

Chege was shot dead outside Kenya's parliament when protestors overpowered anti-riot police and broke inside the parliament.

During the funeral, campaigners presented his family with a flag, claiming that the late Chege had paid the ultimate price for his patriotism.

Activist Boniface Mwangi urged Kenyans to continue the struggle against terrible leadership by replacing President Ruto's image with a photo of the Kenyan flag.

The government claims that 25 people were murdered in protests around the nation, opposing Rights Groups' numbers, which put the death toll far higher at 43.
