It was about 11 am on Mumias-Kakamega highway when things took sad end after a matatu that was being used to ferry the body of Mildred Makokha,19, from St Mary’s Mission Hospital mortuary to Mkungu village in Navakholo Constituency, Kakamega county on a newly tarmacked road developed puncture.
The matatu stopped along Kisumu Ndogo market centre in Mumias East Sub-county next to the deceased matrimonial home while heading to her home where she stayed married and was to be laid to rest.
It is alleged that the corpse refused to be transported following a standoff between the two families over unpaid dowry and the circumstances under which the woman died.
The parents of the late woman were angered with their in-laws after their girl succumbed to complications as a result of her six-month pregnancy asking where the man’s kins hid the dead unborn child.
According to Eunice Nanjala who was seated at the car carrying the corpse, they had just prayed at the morgue after picking the body.
Everything was well before the matatu developed puncture just near the woman’s parents’ home.
