Residents of Ndaluni village in Kitui County, Kenya were in shock after discovering that a man had lived with the corpses of his wife and child for two years.
Kitu Munyoki Mwanzia after being arrested by local police, claimed that his late wife left strict instructions not to be buried. He said his wife died in early 2014 while the child passed away in 2013.
“I was following instructions from my late wife that I should not bury her, but wait for six years as she would resurrect. If it was you who was given such instructions, what would you have done?” Munyoki who spoke from the police station asked.
The shocking discovery was made after Munyoki’s mother-in-law, Pauline Ndunge, travelled to see her daughter after failing to make contact with her since 2013.
“Whenever I called him and demanded to speak to her, he would claim she had refused to talk to me. He would then disconnect the call,” Ndunge said.
Assistant chief Grace Muli said Munyoki had led a mysterious life and did not allow people to visiting him in his home.
The bodies were taken to Migwani hospital. Doctors were surprised at how Munyoki managed to preserve the bodies well for three years.
