Funeral Ceremony Halted After Mourner Is Busted Putting Eggs Inside Coffin

A funeral in Mumias,Kakamega was brought to a standstill after a 60-year-old man was caught sneaking eggs inside the deceased's coffin.

Benson had placed one egg on the deceased's woman left side and another on the head.

Mourners were vexed by his bizarre act and many opined he may have been involved in the woman's death and was putting the eggs to shun away evil spirits.

Jane,an eyewitness caught the suspect placing the two eggs near the deceased's head as she was going to check the body before covering the coffin in readiness for the burial.

Jane quickly raised the alarm to other mourners who got hold of the 60-year-old man, angrily demanding an explanation from him.

The irate mourners attacked the suspect leaving him mildly injured;this incident brought the funeral to a standstill as the locals wrapped their heads around it.

"Ever since I was born I have never seen or heard a case like this one,we are suspecting he was involved in the deceased's death considering her demise was abrupt,"said one of the mourners.

Bishop Simon of the Faith Believers Church,who was conducting the service,was forced to intervene and rescue the suspect from the hands of the mourners.
