Confusion as family fights over late Mama Oliech's burial

Mama Oliech died on July 20

According to Nairobi News, two relatives of Mama Oliech placed the two separate obituaries, one said to be placed by one of her daughters and one by her son.

The first Obituary on page 45 announced that former Harambee Stars Captain Dennis Oliech’s mother, late Mama Auma will be buried on August 18 at the family home in Ratta-Seme, in Kisumu County.

The second obituary on page 46 said that the cortege will leave Umash Funeral Home on August 9 for a requiem mass at Uhuru Church, before leaving Nairobi the same night for arrival at the family home on August 10.

Her daughter Lillian Oliech however declined to comment on the matter.


Mama Oliech died on Friday July 20, after she developed breathing complications while at her Lavington home, following a long battle with cancer that saw her in and out of hospital from time to time.
