A family in Lari, Kiambu County has had to undergo the harrowing experience of exhuming the body of their kin in order to honour the deceased’s wishes on where she should be buried.

Rebecca Nyaga was buried last year next to her late husband despite her insistence that her body should be interred elsewhere.

The family claims that soon after the burial, the woman’s first son developed health problems causing the family to spend a lot of money trying to figure out its cause.

But after a second child suffered the same illness, the family sought an exhumation order in the hope that by honoring their mother’s wish with regard to her burial site, their health problems would end.
