People do not live forever, after you fulfill your purpose in life, death sets in and you join your ancestors. Upon death, it is the wish of everyone to be laid to rest. Most people in Kenya prefer to burry their loved ones in their ancestral homes, while a few prefer public cemetery's.
However, these cemetery's are expensive and most of them are now full. Today, Boniface Mwangi exposed the evil at a popular cemetery in Nairobi, Langata cemetery, through his twitter account. He had attended a burial for a friend and upon reaching the site, they were surprised to find that the grave they had paid for their departed soul had been sold to an army officer's family.
This would later be resolved, but Boniface highlighted the issue of lack of enough space in the cemetery. Bodies are being exhumed to create more space for others to be burried. There isn't even enough space for people to stand while performing their burial rites. They are thus forced to stand on other peoples graves. Boniface, blamed these problems on land grabbing, that reduced the cemetery massively. Kenyans were quick to react on this issue. Check out some of their reactions below.
