Man released on bond for disrupting father's funeral

23 April 2015, 13:13 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A 47-year-old man was Thursday released on KES 20 000 bond by a Murang’a town court after denying charges of breaching peace during the burial of his father.

James Mburu was accused of threatening to kill his mother and two of his siblings on April 19 in Kimathi location, Murang’a County.

It was alleged that while armed with a panga, Mburu chased away mourners who were gathered at their homestead and threatened to kill his 70-year-old mother as well as his two siblings, Michael Thuo and Eunice Wambui.

According to the prosecution, the accused who also poured food that was prepared for the visitors, caused the mayhem claiming that all the family land belonged to him including the home of his late father.
