A Murang’a man was forcefully stopped by neighbours after they found him trying to bury his wife in their bedroom.
The incident which occurred on Saturday, September 26, angered residents who stopped the man from completing his mission.
According to witnesses, the man had asked grave diggers from different villages to dig the grave. The man wanted his ceremony to be a private and a successful mission.
According to the family, it was the mother’s wish to be buried in the house which was yet to be completed.
After speaking to an area resident, he disclosed that the man belonged to a religious cult that believed the dead were just asleep.
“The sect believes that the dead have just gone to sleep and will wake up, that is why he wanted to bury her in the bedroom,” the Murang’a resident explained.
Residents who came to know such a ceremony was about to happen stormed the the mans house and blocked him from proceeding with the ceremony. Others threw stones and woods in the grave.
With all the commotion, the burial of the woman did not take place as her body was returned to Kangema Funeral Home.
