Burial practices in Daudi Karanja indigenous land in Mairi protected area in Kenya

Burial practices in Daudi Karanja indigenous land in Mairi protected area in Kenya. I Micah Kamau Ng’ang’a has previously reported this behavior of burying dead bodies removed from government hospitals, mission hospital and county government hospitals which have the practices of burying or disposing dead bodies in Daudi Karanja indigenous land the practices goes on. Recent example was a child who died at Githumu A.I.C Mission Hospital Mortuary. I now ask your organization to order these institutions to stop these practices and adopt disposal of dead bodies to officially declare and registered as burial public cemetery, your cooperation in demanding compensation for degrading Daudi Karanja indigenous land in Mairi Village Kigumo Sub-county. I have noted that the county council of Murang’a sells burial places to individuals without issuing official receipts with the knowledge of local chiefs Charles Marite Muhoi and sub-chiefs Mwangi Kariuki because they share the proceeds from the sale. The society of Kangari knows that the official cemetery was built a school by the Roman Catholic Church Kangari Town.

There are serious violations in this case. i see also that whoever has turned this into an unofficial burial ground has no respect for the dead. a case on public interest litigation could be filed that side in your courts. coz surely the dead whether identified or not much be respected.

Kindly petition the county government of that area.

Hi @mikanga,

I totally agree with @vincentotieno, petition your county government. You could rally your MCAs as well as the area MP on the same.
