WATCH: Woman's body exhumed over dowry arrears

29 January 2016, 10:55

Nyamira - Police in Nyamira County on Thursday supervised the exhumation of the body of a woman who died before her dowry was fully settled.

It is said that Alice Kemunto Bundi was four months pregnant at the time of her death. She was buried on Tuesday, only for her family to obtain exhumation permit from the court on grounds that they were not informed or involved in her burial arrangements.

The cause of her death remains unclear, although some witnesses were quoted by Standard  as saying she died while procuring an unsafe abortion.

According to the area chief, Bundi had been married for over six years.

Her in-laws confirmed that the dowry had indeed not been settled.

"We had given them [Bundi's family] one cow and KES 5 000 cash though they were asking for KES 20 000," said one of the in-laws interviewed by NTV.
