[VIDEO] Drama in Kitale as corpse ‘refuses’ to be buried at home

A Mercedes Benz hearse carrying the remains of an important business figure failed to move, causing businesses along Kenyatta Street in Kitale’s CBD to come to a standstill and drawing curious onlookers.

An eyewitness who spoke to a local newspaper claimed that the spectacle lasted for more than thirty minutes and that many people were surprised to see the odd event.

Later, the body was taken from the sophisticated German vehicle and placed in a straightforward Toyota Hilux hearse before the procession, which was led by a Salvation Army Band, resumed.

“Such events have never occurred in this community, therefore we are in a state of shock. We occasionally watch and hear about similar events on TV channels, according to an eyewitness.

A Kitale businessman named Philemon Simotwo claimed that the cause of the breakdown of the black Benz driven by a burial services company was unknown.

“I continue to be perplexed as to why the hearse halted in the Kitale CBD. The vehicle had traveled from the morgue all the way to the late businessman’s office building when it suddenly stopped moving, according to Simotwo.

M-Pesa operator Ken Mutai ruled out any mystery and stated that the Benz most likely had some mechanical issues.

“I don’t want to think that the body resisted being transported home, as some people are claiming. What happened is not strange to me because it’s possible that there was a mechanical issue, Mutai remarked.

Under the condition of anonymity, a Bukusu elder provided a cultural analysis of the incident.

In his words, “The body might have refused to be taken home possibly because the person who caused his death was nearby, or that some of his requests had not been met; perhaps the deceased did not want to be carried in an expensive vehicle or did not want to get home early.”
