The body of the Mano Kasinde hitmaker was in the wee hours of Saturday morning buried by the police. Reports indicated that his brother was the only one allowed to bare witness as the singer took the final bow at 2.30 AM.

This was following an earlier confrontation between the mourners and the police who wanted to lay him to rest in a hurried ceremony.

He was to be buried yesterday in line with the government’s strict measures to curb the spread of Covid-19 although the cause of his death was unclear. However, residents disrupted the process hence was unsuccessful.

Residents alluded that he was a person of high status in the Luo community thus needed to be accorded a befitting send-off.
