In a video from the facility, Lee noted that he was motivated to build the private place after several people complained of the poor state of City mortuary.

He further explained that the former Attorney General Charles Njonjo hastened the idea than he anticipated.

According to the Kenyan born with British descent, Njonjo approached him one day at the hospital and gave him a scare.

The eloquent ex-AG asked Lee if he could build a first-class funeral home at the health facility’s ground.

“He (Njonjo) said would you like to build a funeral parlour on the grounds of Nairobi Hospital?” uttered Lee.

The former British police officer noted that the dream became a reality in 1987 and later opened it to the public in 1988.

He pointed out that the funeral home was established in order to provide quality services to the families that lost their loved ones.

The place acted as a temporary storage place for the body until a decision was reached by the families to either cremate or bury their dead.

The soft-spoken Lee reiterated that he was impressed that his achievement motivated the setting up of other funeral homes around the country.
