Land dispute halts burial of Sachang'wan accident victim

19 May 2014, 09:27 Robert Chepkwony

Nakuru - There was drama at the Sachang’wan area of Molo Constituency after a court issued order stopping the burial of one of the passengers who died during the recent Nakuru-Eldoret accident that involved seven vehicles.

Family of the late Francis Karanja, whose body was among the 10 who died in the accident, had been making the funeral arrangements only to be served with a court order stopping the burial owing to a dispute over the land he was to be laid to rest.

Elizabeth Njeri, mother to the deceased, blamed a cousin of her late husband over the turn of events claiming he wanted to obtain the land fraudulently.

“My late husband’s cousin, Nelson Kifunge is trying to shortchange us by attempting to take advantage of my husband’s death to grab our land,” said Njeri.

She said her husband had a loan of KES 90 000 with KCB where the title deed was used as the collateral. However, following his death in 1995, they were unable to pay the loan which has ever since accumulated to KES 300 000.

Njeri further accused the bank for what she termed as fraudulent auctioning of their land to a member of her family.

Charles Njenga, a former Councillor of Sachang'wan, called upon the government to intervene and protect the family from criminals.
