Panic as woman’s body vanishes from grave
It is suspected some people might have raided the grave for some ill cultural act.
Apparently, there had been no tussle over the piece of land where Joyce Auma had been buried as recounted by Mr. Michael Okello, the deceased’s father. He therefore ruled out the possibility of assailants using that as reason for raiding the grave.
“She (Ms Auma) had had three unsuccessful marriages, her former husbands who had abandoned her neither attended her burial nor claimed her body,” he told the Nation.
Ms Auma had a turbulent marriage, her father explained. Her in-laws from Migori County confiscated her family property and sent her away after the death of her first husband 2011.
She then returned to her father’s home in Nyakach and remarried two years later. But the marriage was again short-lived.
Later, she got married to a man from Seme, Kisumu County, but the union broke after she fell sick and later on died in 2016.
The area Chief Zedekiah Okello said that he had reported the matter to the police but investigations were yet to yield any positive results.
