Speaking to TUKO.co.ke, Erodi's best friend and neighbour Kelvine Lagat, waxed lyrical about the young soldier.

Lagat indicated that the young soldier came from a family of seven siblings and was a renowned sportsman at Mogonga Secondary School in Kisii.

"He deserves that job. His talent allowed him to complete high school without paying school fees, so his mother supported him in terms of transport back to school," he stated.
