Siaya senator James Orengo has hired lawyers to take legal action after the “harsh” burial of former Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) employee James Oyugi Onyango who succumbed to COVID 19. Mr. Orengo wants the Health Cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe to explain the cause of death and the manner of the burial of the deceased. What role does the National and County government play in the harsh and despicable funeral in the middle of the night? Mr. Orengo further explained,” Human dignity does not end with death. In all cultures across the world, the burial of the dead is a solemn event accompanied by elaborate rituals. We respect the dead, and that is why we have graves, tombs, crypts, mausoleums, and pyramids. Veneration of the dead is based on love, respect, and dignity for the deceased.”
