Photos of sealed casket of the late Jakayo Midiwo emerged online during his burial at his home village known as Sambinju in Siaya County.
The late Midiwo was the former member of Parliament for Gem in three terms before he lost the seat to Elijah Ochieng. He was also a family man and an ambitious leader who fought for the rights of his people.
His requiem mass was held at CITAM church which is allocated along Valley Road in Nairobi. Several leaders attended the mass and Raila Odinga was among the close relative and friends to give his tributes to the family.
His body was airlifted to his home in a sealed brown coffin, the reason why it was sealed is not yet known though the ministry of the public encouraged all citizens to observe covid-19 protocols to avoid the spread of the virus. May his soul rest in peace.
