Families of the seven police officers who were killed in the recent Kapenguria police station attack are now accusing the leadership of the station of lukewarm cooperation in the ongoing preparations to accord their loved ones a befitting sendoff.
The family of the late Corporal Bernard Katana Kitu from Dabaso area in Kilifi North says it is yet to know when the body of the deceased will be airlifted to Malindi for burial, and that this lack of communication is causing family members untold anguish.
The family members say that the while the mourning period was difficult enough, the distress has been compounded by the fact that they have been getting little or no information at all from the government over the burial plans of their loved ones.
The late Corporal Katana Kitu’s family, for one, have accused the leadership of Kapenguria police station of being uncooperative.
The family had rallied together to prepare for the burial of their late kin, with all the plans ready for the event, only for their plans to be scuttled by the absence of the body and unsatisfactory communication over when the body might be available.
