Keagan, 24, was working with Kenya RE after he recently graduated from Strathmore University where he studied Information Technology.
On Sunday afternoon, the family and friends held a requiem mass at Ridgeways Baptist Church, Nairobi where they described Keagan as peaceful and loving.
Her mother Lucy Githua said her only son Keagan was stabbed in the chest as he resisted the robbers.
She said Keagan was pronounced dead upon being taken to AAR hospital along Kiambu road by a Good Samaritan.
She described the death of her only son as a hit to the family urging the government to track his phone and arrest those who killed him.
“My son was killed for nothing. They could have injured him instead of killing him, he was my hope, all I need is justice for my son," she said.
Roni Karina, a cousin, during the demonstration, urged security operatives to ensure that the perpetrators are arrested and taken to Court.
He said that the security laxity is to blame for increased crime in the area.
“We aren’t doing this for Keagen, but to the Kenyans out there, we are urging the security operators to ensure justice to all Kenyans," he said.
Roysambu member of Parliament Kamande Mwafrika said security will be beefed up in the area.
He said security agencies will investigate the matter.
He urged members of the public to be always watchful and report anybody with questionable character.
"My administration is committed to ensuring that security is beefed in all areas," he said.
Former Dagoretti South Mp Denis Waweru urged the government to control the bodaboda sector.
Waweru said that it's very unfortunate that Kenyans are losing lives through thieves riding on motorcycles.
He said that security agencies should arrest those involved in criminal activities.
Keagan will be buried on Wednesday at Kahuhia, Murang’a County.
