In Summary

  • A dead man was allegedly owed KSh400,000 by a shop owner and fellow bodaboda operators before he died.
  • Efforts to reach the debtor were futile informing kin's move to take casket bearing his remains to the borrower's shop.

Drama ensued in Bondeni area, Nakuru, when a family dumped a casket bearing the remains of their kin at a shop of a man who allegedly owed the deceased. The family said efforts to reach the debtor during funeral arrangements were futile hence the unconventional decision.

The alleged debtor identified as Baba Martin owed the deceased KSh400,000. It is reported that the deceased - who was a bodaboda operator - was part of a savings group.

Speaking to the press on Monday, February 20, a relative to the deceased said they will recover part of the debt by seizing Baba Martin's motorbike which was estimated at KSh150,000. They demand that the balance (KSh250,000) be paid in cash. 

The police however intervened and urged the family members to take their kin's body back to the morgue or bury it then report the borrower later.

"We have advised them that they should either take the body to the mortuary or bury it. If they do not return the body, we will take it to the mortuary in our capacity as law enforcement officers," police officer Masika said.
