CNN journalist Larry Madowo has taken to social media to offer help to unravel what happened to Rex Masai.

Rex was shot and killed during protests on Thursday, June  20.

Madowo shared that his DMs were open to anyone who had original videos or CCTV footage of the shooting incident.

The journalist said he was trying to track people who filmed the videos.

“My DMs are open. Nitumie original videos ama CCTV so we can investigate,”

“I BEEN trying to track the people who filmed these videos. Not a version on social media – the original. My DMs are open. Please share.” Madowo said.

Meanwhile, Rex Masai’s father said his son was obedient and peaceful and demanded justice for him.

“Rex Kanyike Masai was our firstborn, a very calm child, very peaceful and obedient, he was shot in his thigh and a friend called us to inform us about the incident. The only mistake Rex made was to defend the rights of everyone, we want justice for our child.” The father said.

The mother also narrated her son’s last moments before his death saying she was heartbroken not to see him alive.

She revealed that her son and his friend were in the CBD to run errands.

Rex was standing near the archives when a tear gas canister was thrown near him.

The duo then started running with police chasing after them.

It was at this moment that a police officer fired at them, the bullet hit Rex on his thighs making him fall.
