In Kenya, Shock engulfed mourners at a homestead in Mukonge Village, Lugari Constituency in Kakamega County on Monday, September 14 after four different vehicles hired to transport the body of an 88-year-old man to a nearby mortuary broke down in mysterious circumstances.
Kepha Abukusi died in the wee hours of Monday morning, and his family hired a van to take his remains to a morgue.
However, upon loading Abukusiâs body onto the van, the vehicleâs engine failed. Another van was, consequently, hailed. Again, its engine failed when Abukusiâs remains were loaded onto it. The same happened when a third and fourth vehicle were hired for the same mission.
Surprisingly, every time Abukusiâs body was offloaded, the vehiclesâ engines roared back to life.
The deceasedâs nephew, Evans Avoga Odari, toldÂ K24 DigitalÂ that they had to return Abukusiâs body into the house after the four vehicles developed mechanical problems in unclear circumstances.
âWe suspect that he (Abukusi) doesnât want to be separated from us just yet, hence his resistance to leave the homestead,â said Odari.
Abukusiâs family say they will be forced to perform traditional rituals to appease the deceased into âaccepting to join the next worldâ.
