RIP! Burial plans announced for Tharaka Nithi politician Francis Kiambi
The family has said that a Tharaka Nithi political leader who died at his home on Monday, January 9, 2023, will be buried on Friday, January 20, 2023.
Mr. Francis Kiambi Kiriro, 50, body is currently lying at the Lee Funeral Home and will be picked up by the family on Friday at 6 am.
“The cortege leaves Lee Funeral Home on January 20, 2023, at 6am for internment at his Nkarini Home within Tharaka Nithi County,” a statement released by the family read in part.
Nairobi News has established that family and friends are meeting daily at his Karen home in Nairobi County.
A memorial service will be held on Thursday, January 19, 2023, at St Francis Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) in Karen.
The deceased passed away on the same day when he differed with his wife Ms. Mary Waigwe Muthoni, over an Sh2 billion loan that he wanted to use to start a business.
In a police report seen by Nairobi News giving details of his death, Ms. Muthoni said they arrived home at midnight after meeting with the family advocate at a joint within Karen Shopping Center. They were also with a relative.
“The couple had some domestic differences since Ms Muthoni had refused to guarantee the deceased a loan of Sh2 billion which he intended to take to open a business,” the police report read in part.
The couple on that night did not spend in the same room, and each of them slept on their own separately.
Ms. Muthoni said that the deceased never woke up, but she could hear him snoring throughout the day and night, and he even vomited inside the room he had spent his night in.
The following morning, the wife went to the room where the husband was sleeping to check up on him.
She told the police that she found him lying dead on the bed with some vomit beside the bed.
“They then called a doctor from Karen Hospital who confirmed the death at around 9AM. The scene was visited by the police and processed,” the police report further read, adding that he did not have any physical injuries.
