Drama ensued at Umash funeral Home in Nairobi after a Nigerian national attempted to take his dead wife’s body without the family’s consent.

Reports indicate that Charles Emedo arrived at the morgue to collect the body of Andear Mwangi in a plot that did not succeed.

The body of the deceased has been the subject of a long-standing court battle, pitting Emedo against his would-be in-laws.

Andear passed on from liver-related complications at the age of 35 more than two months ago.

Prior to her death, the two (Andear and Emedo) lived as husband and wife for nine years and were blessed with two children.

Andear’s family however do not recognize the Nigerian national as the husband to the deceased and want to give the deceased a final send-off.

“There is nobody that is buried by somebody unknown when the parents and relatives are not aware,” Lydia Mwathathi, the deceased’s mother said.

“They have stayed together for some time but they are neither married officially nor customary.

Hakulipa dowry, that was not a marriage, mtu ni kama amekidnap mtoto na amemuweka mahali hawezi jitoa,” she added.

Police as well as the morgue attendants are on high alert and maintain that the body will not be moved until the matter is heard in court and determined.

The two warring parties are scheduled to appear in court on 05 December 2019.
