Human skull stops ongoing road project

27 May 2015, 09:33 Arap Yego

Bungoma - A contractor working on a road project in Mt Elgon constituency, Bungoma County, was yesterday forced to halt the process after a grader unearthed a human skull.

Alarmed villagers of Sasur area along the Chwele- Cheptais road forced the contractor to stop the work until the ancestors were appeased, noting that maybe the spirits were not happy with the road project.

They explained that in the Sabaot culture, when such things happen, sacrifices had to be made to appease the spirits of the deceased ancestor whose skull was unearthed.

“We need to get a sheep and perform a ritual to appease the dead before the construction of the road continues,” said Masuti Chemasuet, an elder.

Michael Chebus, the Cheptais Ward administrator told News24 that the skull is believed to be that of an old man who was buried in the area in the early 1930’s.
