Remains of melted Thika man to be buried next week



By Judith Gicobi

Caleb Otieno’s remains, which were recovered from the bottom of the steel furnace where he died in Thika, will be buried on Saturday, April 9.

The family is considering the burial like a typical funeral, according to Michael Orao, the deceased’s cousin who has been speaking on behalf of the family to a local daily.

Thika Level 5 morgue has preserved the remains, ashes, and slug gathered from the furnace floor.

On April 8, they will be discharged from the facility and placed in an adult casket before being transported to his ancestral home in Kogony, Kisumu.

Before being released from the mortuary, the remains will have to undergo a postmortem examination.

“We are doing the funeral arrangements as normal as possible. We are meeting daily at his house in Kiganjo area of Thika and we are having a larger family meeting this Sunday,” Orao said

The morgue is charging the family standard charges, which are Sh500 for the first six days and then a daily charge after that.

Additionally, the 34-year-old man’s parents returned to their home on Wednesday morning to oversee the funeral arrangements.
