Well, The discussion of a killer Wanjala's burial is ongoing with the family members and the entire community keen on preventing bad omen. Wanjala was killed by the masses a week ago after he had escaped from the police station.
Elders from the family said rituals should be performed before and after his internment to drive out the spirits that might follow the family.
Wanjala's father Mzee Robert Watila said they were not ready to bury the 20year old for fear of contracting a curse.
The family even skipped the post-motherm of their son Wanjala which were performed by the homicide detectives at Bungoma county referral hospital.
Mukwenya's Assistant Chief Abiud Musungu said the family refused to pick calls from the authorities to take a DNA test and bury their son . The family said they want to be given more time to think over the matter.
Chief said, the government might be forced to bury the suspected killer should his family maintain their stand.
Elders from the family want the buried at the river bank and at night. They believe that burying the body at the river bank would see the dead person's bad deeds and memories about him washed away down the stream.
Before the burial, someone will go to their home and engage him in a conversation. He will then splash a concoction meant to clinse him and the family.
After that, the person will be gifted a bull and while leaving the compound he will have to walk without looking back.
