A family that buried their kin in a school compound in Baringo North during the night has been ordered to exhume the body.
Delivering his ruling, Kabarnet Resident Magistrate Vienna Amboko said the grave of the man sitting outside a classroom at Koroto Day Secondary School will disturb the peace of mind of students.
The Kipchabas family, however, said that justice had been denied vowing not to let anybody exhume the body of their father.
Paul Kipchabas was buried outside the classroom and his grave cemented in the dead of night.
The family is embroiled in a land dispute with the management of the school. The late Kipchabus died on March 23 and was buried at night three days later.
While making the ruling resident magistrate viena Amboko on behalf of Paul Biwot who is the judge said the burial which took place at night before the grave cemented was disturbing and had no students of the school could not have peace of mind.
Koroto Day School, which currently caters for Form One and Form Two students only, was built by professionals from the area. They are said to have raised KSh3 million through a ‘Harambee’. The aim was to help students from humble backgrounds to continue with their studies.
Consequently, Loruk OCS has since been served with the order to exhume the body. The exhumation exercise is expected to be marred with drama, with the family vowing not to let go off “our land.”
