The community is deeply shaken by this loss, and neighbours have expressed their grief, describing Owuor as a “good neighbour” who was “beloved by all.”

In conclusion, the loss of Silas Owuor is a devastating blow to the Mbale Boys’ school community and the broader Vihiga County region.

His legacy as an excellent teacher and dedicated member of the community will be remembered and cherished by all who knew him. May his family, friends, and colleagues find comfort and strength during this difficult time.
