The burial of slain Sharon Otieno’s unborn baby, which was to take place on Thursday, has been postponed due to financial constraints.
Ms Otieno’s family will inter the remains of the seven-month old baby a day later as the Homa Bay County Government has promised to chip in.
Ms Melida Auma, Ms Otieno’s, mother said that the county requested the family to hold on as they make arrangements to help.
Ms Auma said the baby’s burial will be expensive so they need assistance from Homa Bay where her daughter was born and raised.
“The county executive for water, Dickson Nyawinda, visited us yesterday and after consultations, we agreed to wait till tomorrow (Friday),” Ms Auma said at her home in Magare village, Homa Bay.
Her husband, Mr Douglas Otieno, had on Wednesday pointed to financial constraints, saying: “Look at me. I cannot even attend court proceedings in Nairobi because I have no fare. It brings me more grief that I cannot be there to see the case unfold.”
