Photos of the Coffin of Pauline Wakasa Who Was Killed By Matiang'i's Bodyguard

A homicide/suicide case has been trending for some days after a GSU officer attached to Matiang'i's security system shot his wife Pauline Wakasa and himself to death. The incident happened after the two had a confrontation as revealed by Pauline's sister.

Wakasa's body was transported yesterday from Kenyatta University Mortuary to her rural home of Matsakha village, Malava constituency in Kakamega county for burial.

Her parents refused to have her body buried at her matrimonial home because according to Luhya traditions if a man kills his wife and himself the wife should be laid to rest at her parent's home.

Pauline Wakasa's niece identified as Pauline Mwenje took pictures of her coffin and shared them on Facebook to update the Kenyans who have been following the story. It was a tawny brown half-couch coffin as seen in the photos.

She also took photos of the open coffin and the late was dressed in a white gown and a white satin veil with some laces covered the inside.

Contrary to Luhya traditions, Pauline was burried today Sunday 11th April. The decision was due to the condition of the body and following Covid-19 protocols. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
