Classes disrupted as former Kitutu Masaba MP’s wife is buried

Classes have been suspended in schools near the home of former Kitutu Masaba MP Timothy Bosire.

This follows a funeral service of his late wife Jane Bosire set to be conducted at St Patrick’s Nyamwanga Secondary and Nyamwanga Primary schools.

Walter Monayi, a parent, said even if an alternative ground was sought, there will still be a disruption in learning activities.

“Bosire's home is just next to the school. Learners will not withstand the noise from choppers and public address systems at the funeral,” Momanyi said.

Five years ago, the Ministry of Education banned communities from holding funerals services in schools after it emerged that learners had been adversely affected.

By Sunday evening, the grounds were a beehive of activities as bulldozers levelled grounds and repaired roads leading into the school.

The organisers of the event were also setting up tents that will accommodate about 400 mourners.

The event is likely to be conducted in disregard of Covid-19 protocols that require mourners not to exceed 50.

Bosire’s wife, Jane, who died 10 days ago while undergoing treatment at the Nairobi Hospital, will be buried today at Nyamwanga.

Richard Kaka, Nyamira Orange Democratic Movement Chairman, confirmed Sunday that ODM leaders led by Raila Odinga are expected to attend the funeral.

Others expected at the event are Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i and MPs Joash Nyamoko (North Mugirango), Jerusha Momanyi (Women Rep), Ben Momanyi (Borabu), Vincent Kemosi (West Mugirango) and Shadrack Mose (Kitutu Masaba).
