Controversy Surrounds Burial of Senior KDF Officer After Second Wife Obtained Orders To Stop Burial

Kenya Defence Forces fraternity held a requiem mass in honour of the late Colonel Flavian Wareru on 5th October 2022 at the Roman Catholic Church in Moi Air Base (MAB), Nairobi.

According to police, Waweru’s body was found locked in his vehicle parked a few meters from the station on Monday afternoon along Juja Road by curious onlookers who had spotted the car in a stationery position for long.

Controversy surrounds the burial of Waweru after a woman who claims to be his wife obtained court orders to stop the burial.

Sharon Kendi Mburugu obtained orders from court seeking her to be part of the burial plans.

The orders also restrained Waweru’s widow, Carol Makele Amanyi, from removing the body from the mortuary for burial.

Kendi who moved to court after Waweru’s death claimed that she was his second wife and they had cohabited for 12 years. She also claimed that she had a four-year-old child, meaning the kid was Waweru’s son.

However, Kendi and her son were locked out and the family went ahead with the burial process. The deceased was buried in his Bital farm in Nyandarua County.

The woman sought to have samples taken from the body of Waweru to be taken for DNA test to confirm the child’s paternity.

Ms Kendi has threatened to institute contempt proceedings against Makele.

Days to his death, Col Waweru had presided over the closing ceremony of the Kenya Air Force New Soldiers Sports Talent Search Championship 2022 at Moi Air Base in Nairobi.
