Friday June 12, 2020 – Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, has alleged that his counterpart, Kiambu Central MP, Jude Njomo, was forced to bury his mother (in photo) at 8 pm in the night.
Kuria claimed that Deputy President William Ruto was to visit Njomo’s family on Sunday at their home in Kananga, but Njomo was forced to bury his mother before Ruto could visit.
“It is really shocking.”
“He was called in the night and told that the mother will be buried immediately,” Kuria stated.
The vocal MP accused the Government of double standards when it came to how Kenyans were being allowed to conduct burials of their loved ones.
When reached for comment over the matter, Njomo stated that he was not willing to participate in political innuendos.
“I am still mourning my mother and I am not ready to comment,” he stated.
Njomo took to social media on Tuesday to announce the death of his mother with a moving message.
“You gave life to me, turned a baby into a gentleman.”
“All you had to offer was a promise of a lifetime of love.”
“Now I know there’s no other love like a mother’s love…”
“It breaks my heart to say goodbye. Rest in Peace Mom!” he said.
One of the measures the Government has taken to combat the spread of Coronavirus in Kenya is the ban on all forms of gathering that is larger than 15 people.
Health CS Mutahi Kagwe told Kenyans that there will be numerous challenges with regards to the disposal of bodies in the wake of Covid19.
“Be mentally prepared and accept that Covid-19 bodies shall be disposed of in a manner that protects the living from infections and accordance with burial protocols put in place,” he stated.
