Brenda Akeya Kurt and the late Samuel Kurt Donze, 81, married in a traditional ceremony in Western Kenya in 2006 but opted to reside in Watamu.
Since his death, Akeya has been walking around with the ashes in an urn because she fears for her life.
She told a local daily of how she has been evicted from the home she shared with her husband after a man claimed to have purchased the house, and how they also want to take Kurt’s ‘body’ from her.
“They have offered me money in exchange of the ashes but I will only hand over the urn toKurt’s children from his first marriage,” said Akeya.
Apparently, one of the people who is frustrating her was a friend of her husband, and he has been demanding the ashes from her to send them home to his family.

“His children know me as their step mother. Now this man has come to evict me from my home, claiming ownership after giving me three days to leave. I will send the ashes to Kurt’s children but only after they buy me a house and ensure my children go to school,” added Akeya.
Donze had been paying for her children’s education and before he died, he’d planned on taking Akeya home to meet hi family and to have another weeding,
He died of a cardiopulmonary arrest aside from suffering Alzheimer’s disease.
