A woman in her 30s, who hails from Saimo Kipsaraman in Baringo North, will be buried barely 48 hours after she died in unclear circumstances.

Peris Chemweno, a mother of three, had spent Wednesday night (March 25) drinking alcohol with her friends at a bar in Kipsaraman trading centre, before heading home, where she was found dead early Thursday, March 26.

Chemweno, who was a widow, will have to be buried without a postmortem examination conducted to establish the exact cause of her death as morgues in the county remained shut to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Chemweno was, as a result, preserved in her house in Saimo Kipsaraman, with her burial, that will only be attended by her immediate family members, set for Saturday, March 28.

The deceased’s relative, Willy Aengwo, said it was unfortunate they will bury their loved one without getting closure on what led to her death.
