Sonko comes to the rescue of Kenyan family whose daughter was buried in Lebanon without their knowledge
The body of a Kenyan woman buried in Lebanon without her family's knowledge has been exhumed and transported to Kenya, former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has revealed.
In a long post shared on his Facebook page, Sonko revealed that the body of Jacinta Mugure Kamau had been buried in Lebanon's Akkar cemetery as an unknown body.
Mugure's family reached out to the former Nairobi Governor on October 9, 2022, for help and now they will lay her body to rest on Saturday, November 5, 2022.
"Finally the tears of a Kenyan family whose daughter was buried in the Middle East country without their knowledge have been wiped after we successfully chipped in to help.
"The body of the Late Jacinta Mugure Kamau which was buried in Lebanon Akkar cemetery as an unknown body was exhumed and airlifted to Nairobi where upon arrival it was taken to KU mortuary," Sonko said in the post.
While pleading with Kenyans to help the family, Sonko has further revealed that the deceased has left behind two school-going sons.
"The family still needs help as the deceased leaves behind two sons who are still in school. We want to thank our Lebanese consulate for its support and cooperation. The family can be reached through 0715469149," he says.
