A man who identified himself as Omote’s uncle, Robert Kibagendi Ondieki, also posted on Facebook to mourn his fallen nephew.

“We’ve been hit hard by death that has snatched my nephew, Newborn Omote. Losing a pilot is a loss that words cannot explain. Surely, this world is not our home. Jesus, come and take us home.”

“First it was my cousin Kaizer who left us, and now it’s my cousin Omote who died in the plane crash. What’s really happening to the Omote family? My condolences to the Omote family,” she said.
