As murder detectives hunt for the person(s) responsible for the attack, Mr Bringye’s sister paid tribute to her brother on a fundraising page titled ‘Help take Gabriel home’.
She wrote: “Unfortunately, my brother was killed while working as a taxi driver. We don’t have much information about what happened because the police don’t tell us anything and the culprit has not been caught yet.
“They are left with a family that will never recover.”
She added: “Please help us take Gabriel home, to be with his parents, in the country where he was born and he would have wanted to go back one day but not like that.”
More than £11,000 has been raised on the Go Fund Me page.
