Former Head of Civil Service Jeremiah Kiereini will be cremated on Thursday in an ultra-private ceremony, a family member has confirmed.

Without disclosing many details on those who have been invited, the family member who sought anonymity told reporters that members of press would not be allowed to cover the event.

"It will be a very, very private affair and I am told the media is not allowed to attend. Apart from the close family members, I'm told only a few friends have been invited," the relative told Standard.

It is understood that Kiereini had expressed his wish to be cremated to his family long before his sudden death on Monday.

Funeral Service to be held at a later date

According to Kiereini's daughter, a funeral service will be held at a later date and may be open to the public.

"We will communicate to you in case of anything. But as it is, the function tomorrow is a strict family affair. The funeral service will be communicated at a later date," Nemaisa Kiereini reiterated in a brief response to reporters.

Kiereini joins a growing list of prominent personalities in Kenya who have been cremated as a preference they expressed before their deaths.

In April 2018, the late Kenneth Matiba was cremated at the Lang'ata Crematorium while Nobel Laurette Wangari Maathai was cremated at the Kariokor Crematorium in 2004 as per her wishes as well.
