Kiambu Level F
“When we arrived at the mortuary this morning, we were given a body belonging to someone else and we rejected it. We demanded we be given Mburu’s body but it seemed that it had already been released to another family. We checked all the bodies which were at the facility at the time, but none of them belonged to my late husband,” Mburu’s wife, Ms Njeri told Daily Nation.
After a tussle with the mortuary’s attendants, the hospital’s management ordered six male bodies that had been released since morning returned. By Wednesday 6th, only three bodies had been brought back.
None turned out to be Mburu’s. His family was forced to put off burial plans and ask the mourners to disperse as they searched for his body.
