Family re-buries son 6 months after he was mistakenly buried in Kisii

Alcoholic digs grave in desperation

A family in Nkabune Village of Imenti North Sub County has finally re-buried their son late Polycap Kinyua Zakayo who died in a road accident on Mombasa road on May this year.

Kinyua had been buried in Kisii County after another family mistakenly identified him as their kin.

According to a relative named Kimaita Kibue, the family was not aware that Polycarp was involved in an accident. He says they were informed of their loss when Police in Athi River called, asking them to identify the body.

After checking the body, Kibue says the family realised that they had been presented with the wrong one. Upon further investigation, the family found out that their relative had been buried in Kisii.

The family sought a court order to exhume the body and perform a DNA test. The test proved that the body that was buried in Kisii was actually Polycarp’s.

The family has now buried their kin.
