Drama ensued in Bungoma after a conflict arose over the burial of their kin. The late Chrisandus Sifuna was expected to be laid to rest today at his home in Kitinda village, Bungoma county, when all hell broke loose during his burial process.
According to reliable reports, a conflict arose among the family members of the deceased over where the remains of the late Christopher should be laid to rest. The deceased is reported to have had two wives, and conflict arose among his children over where exactly the remains of their father should be laid to rest.
According to a representative of the first wife, they expected to bury their father next to the remains of their mother, but family members of the second wife opposed the move.
According to the children from the second wife, their deceased father had left a will directing that his remains be buried next to those of his second wife.
Due to the unresolved family dispute, the burial could not take place, and family members were forced to do the unthinkable as they returned the remains of their dead father back to the mortuary.
An elder who had witnessed the entire incident criticized the family members as he called on them to find an amicable solution to their dispute. The guests who had come to the event left one by one disappointed as the event played out.
