DRAMA ENSUES AS KISII COUNTY'S PUBLIC SERVICE BOARD CHAIRMAN  BURIAL HALTED BY SECOND WIFE.

In a shocking twist, Kisii County’s public service board chairman Evans Mamboleo’s burial slated for today has been halted. This is after his second wife obtained a court order which restricted the first wife from conducting the burial.

The burial which was slated for today was temporarily injucted by Principal magistrate Stephen Onjoro who restrained Mamboleo’s first wife,Aernest Mwango and her relatives from taking Mamboleo’s body from the mortuary.

In her words, Kwamboka claimed that she is the mother of the deceased’s eldest son and the Gusii customs allow him to participate in his father’s funeral.

She also claimed that the first wife to the deceased declined from allowing her to be involved in her late husband’s burial arrangements and insisted that without this  , the late husband would not be given a proper send-off.

The magistrate also called the matter as urgent and called for a hearing of both parties on July 29.

The Kisii county official died after complaining of chest pains on Tuesday 13 July while receiving treatment at a private hospital in Mombasa.
