The family of Hudson Wanjohi was allowed to unearth the body of their kin. This is a month after his burial. They then carried on with the process on Friday at Nyeri in a farm belonging to a woman claiming to be the deceased's wife.
“Hapa kulikuwa na mazishi mwezi mmoja uliopita. Lakini huyo mzee akakufa, mama akamzika na walikuwa wamekaa na yeye miaka 16. Lakini alikuwa na familia yake huyo mzee,” said his neighbour Francis Muchemi.
The residents of the place were mesmerized by what they were witnessing.
According to the family of the corpse, they were not aware of the marriage between the deceased and Muthoni who had earlier claimed the body for burial. The brother said they heard rumors but the two families have never met.
Muthoni however claimed that she had been taking care of Wanjohi after his family abandoned him. Hence, she has the right to bury him.
The body now lies at the Mathari hospital morgue awaiting post-mortem to establish the circumstances around his death and a fresh burial date.
