Diaspora Shattered Dreams: Kenyan Lady Janet Oyuga (Jay) Murdered In Washington State

Late Janet Oyuga (Jay)
Janet in her hey days

Just like all in the Diaspora, Janet came to America to pursue her dream but the same was cut short by a murderer who never reasoned that this young girl had many years to live and enjoy life on this earth.

The murderer never gave Janet a chance to enjoy life and without thinking ended her life.

We in the Diaspora should join hands and show the murderer that though Jay is gone, we will stand with her and her sister who luckily survived. We as a community full of love should assist this family so that we can accord Jay a warm send off.

Freedom from sin, sanctification, eternal life — all are gifts freely given by our God through His son Jesus Christ. “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.


It is with humble and sorrowful acceptance that we announce the untimely death through murder of our dearest friend Janet “Jay” Oyuga.

Janet and her sister Angela were attacked at their home that they had recently bought on auction. In their kindness they had continued hosting the previous homeowner (the suspect) who had no where to move out of respect for her old age.
The assailant murdered Janet at the home and hid in wait for the sister Angela to get home from her late shift.  Angela, unaware of what had transpired, was shot on the back as she was walking up the stairs. Janet was pronounced dead by law enforcement at the scene.

Fortunately, we did not lose Angela and she is recuperating at Harborview Hospital in Seattle.
We humbly request your prayers and financial contribution as we raise funds to send Janet’s body back to her family in Kenya and meet other funeral costs. In addition, with the nature of Angela’s injuries, we would like to get Angela’s sister to come over and help take care of her as she will not be able to work for a while. This is a very complex case and needs legal counsel to ensure justice for our sisters in this heinous crime.
