Sunday, June 14, 2020 – Members of the Luo community have once again accused the Government of treating them like second class citizens.
This is after late Ohangla singer, Abbeny Jachiga, was buried in the dead of the night under tight securitywith only his younger brother, Austin Omondi, allowed to witness the burial.
This sparked outrage with protesters threatening to exhume his body and accord him a dignified send off.
It took the intervention of his mother who sat on the grave to prevent the angry protestors from exhuming the body.
The celebrated Ohangla singer passedaway on Thursday, June 11th at 2am while undergoing treatment at St Jairus Hospital in Kisumu where he had been admitted after developing breathing complications on June 9th, 2020.
The mourners feel that the Government is applying double standards in burying people suspected to have died of Covid19 and only Luos are being buried at night while elsewhere they are given a dignified burial.
