A family in Eburinde village, Butere Sub-County in Kakamega was thrown into shock and grief after county officials forced the exhumation of the body of an employee who had been buried in service uniform.
Mr Martin Shikuku Alukoye, 31, who worked with the Kakamega County Youth Service, drowned in River Eburinde on August 7 and was buried on the night of August 11 in line with Luhya customs.
He was reported to be epileptic and drowned after he collapsed in the fast running waters while crossing the river.

BURIED IN UNIFORM

He was buried fully dressed in the green coloured county youth service uniform including boots, service cap and a lanyard.

On August 12, Ituti community county administrator, accompanied by other administrators, visited the home in a bid to take back the service attire that was allocated to the dead officer.

But they were informed that the county employee had been buried clad in the uniform.

It was then that the county officials demanded that the body be exhumed to retrieve the uniform.
Pleas by the family resisting the move fell on deaf ears.

NO COURT ORDER

The county officials, without any court order, forcibly exhumed the body.
