A woman from Murang’a who was believed to have died and buried 27 years ago has returned home, despite her family receiving her dowry and attending her burial in Nyeri County 14 years ago.
Hannah Wangari was buried in her husband’s home in Nyeri.
However, on the other hand, Wangari was married and was living in Kiambu with her five children and her two grandchildren.
“After years of searching our daughter, we had an announcement on radio of a woman who was admitted at the Nyeri Hospital who mentioned our names as her parents and one of her brothers, she wished to see her parents on her death bed,” her father Joseph Mwangi said.
They visited her at the hospital but she was too frail to be identified and to express herself, she later died after three days and burial plans started.
It is then that they found out that the woman they thought was their daughter had been married in Nyeri and had had two children, a boy and a girl. The boy had passed away a few months before.
