Kenya’s Standard Newspaper is reporting that the family of a lady who was shot dead by an elderly woman in Seattle, USA will have to wait longer to bury her following difficulty in flying the body home.

“They are still working on some logistics. They have not been able to get a flight,” Sophie said.

Janet and her sister Angela were attacked by an elderly woman they had given shelter in their house. Angela survived but is nursing injuries at a hospital.

Janet’s burial was scheduled for last Saturday at her parents’ home in Gem, Siaya County.

The sister however  says that their friends were doing their best to have the body flown to Kenya despite the challenges.

Up to the time of going to press, the family was not sure on when the remains would be flown to Kenya. Janet’s mother, Sarah Oyuga, confirmed the postponement of her daughter’s burial but hoped that she could get to bury her as soon as possible.

“We cannot tell when the body will be flown here for burial, since it missed coming this week,” Mrs. Oyuga said adding that her daughter Angela would not be flying home. “She is still unwell and will not be coming,” she said.

Janet succumbed to gunshot wounds and Angela survived the ordeal after being rushed to hospital. Janet’s family had high hopes that her remains would land in Kenya and a requiem mass be held on Friday before she could be laid to rest on Sunday.

Sophie said that a requiem mass was held in Seattle.

“A mass was held and we will still hold another mass here when the body arrives,” she says.

Beverly Jenne, who allegedly shot Janet and her sister Angela has been charged with second-degree murder and assault.

She later tried to commit suicide, according to local news reports.

She was narrating how she was taught to bid her loved one’s farewell.

What caught the attention of many is the heavy accent, Lilian spoke with.

Lilian who is a fitness enthusiast and a mother of two had visited to bid farewell to her grandfather.

Speaking during the burial a composed Lilian, told the crowd of how confused she was when her uncle told her she had to add a little spice and drama when she entered her ancestral home.

According to her uncle, Japeth, she had to wail once she arrived at her kin’s home.

Apparently, walking without a string of tears rolling down her face was not a perfect look for a true Luo who had lost a relative.

“I wanted to pay my last respects to my grandfather and my uncle Japheth told me whenever I reach the homestead I cannot just get out of the car and walk to the house. He said I have to cry on the way to the homestead,”

She then went on to show the crowd how she was taught to mourn by her uncle.

Well, we got a few photos of her and her husband and we must admit she is looking fly for a mother of two.

The two have sustained same longtime friends and Celestine shares the little secret for that.

She says;

“I have learnt that in life, you need to learn at most five close friends.

 By doing this, be sure that the first three will help you when you are in need.”

She further adds having too many friends also drains you financially

“Imagine all those friends have birthdays and they need you to show up, yaani every time you are planning of how to spend unlike when you have a small circle.”

 

And there is also societal pressure to have many friends;

“Ata kama umesota, it is hard to communicate that to a big number of people because some will gossip about you and most of them show up when you have a party, but when you are in a problem, you will not have them around,” she said.

She also insists on being yourself, don’t compete

“When you compete with your friends, you will get exhausted. So go with your pace.”

Some of the couple’s long-time close friends include; Abel Mutua and his wife Judy Nyawira, Philip and his wife Cate Actress.

Deputy President William Ruto has been missing on social media lately. The silence is too loud, given the pressure being piled on the ruling party – Jubilee.

His last activity on social media was on Sunday, January 12 where he had attended an interdenominational church service at St Paul’s Makongi Secondary School in Soy Constituency, Uasin Gishu County, with other leaders.

“The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers from them all. – Psalm 34:19 During an interdenominational church service at St Paul’s Makongi Secondary School in Soy Constituency, Uasin Gishu County,” his posts on Twitter and Facebook reads.

The DP also attended a church service in Narok County on the same and posted about it.

“But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. – Mathew 6:33, During the official opening of African Gospel Church (A.G.C) Olerai Bethel Sanctuary, Narok West in Narok County,” the other post read.

Still, on 12th January, he congratulated athletes Rhonex Kipruto and Sheila Chepkirui for breaking the men’s and women’s 10 Km world record in Valencia.

The silence is profound when President Kenyatta moved to reclaim his say in the government.

Mr. Kenyatta on Tuesday sacked Mwangi Kiunjuri, Dr. Ruto’s point man in the Mt Kenya region, from the cabinet.
