The residents of Kapmasawai in Bomet county witnessed a shocking scene after mourners were attacked by a swarm during the burial of one woman who had died in the area. It was reported that the incident happened since the husband to the dead woman had not paid a dowry to her family.
The commotion led to the hospitalization of some mourners and family members after they sustained injuries while running for their lives.
According to Lemiso Emmanuel Sato, who enjoys massive social media following, their family decided to bury the woman at her parent's home in Olenguruone, Nakuru county. The woman was buried at night in line with the Kalenjin culture. Further reports say that the second burial was peaceful with no drama.
The decision was made by the elders of the community after the woman refused to be buried in his husband's home. The elders also advised the youth and those in marriage to settle with their inlaws when their partners are still alive to avoid such embarrassing incidents from repeating.
May the Lord comfort the family and may the woman's soul rest in eternal peace.
