Business mogul Wilfred Murungi was yesterday buried in a strictly private ceremony attended by only a handful of close relatives.

Attendance of the burial of the founder and chairman of Mastermind Tobacco Kenya Limited was by invitation only. So guarded was the ceremony that some relatives who had not been invited for the burial were turned away.

Due to his immense wealth, many had expected a colourful send-off for a man who played in the league of British tobacco companies and almost conquered them. But they were disappointed.

One of his nephews who drove his mother to the burial was turned away at the gate with only the elderly woman being allowed in. According to a relative who declined to be named, only 20 people were expected at the brief ceremony and that was the exact number of chairs that were arranged at the tent where the ceremony took place.

Police officers who had been deployed to provide security in the compound and enforce the privacy orders outnumbered the mourners.

why respect the wishes of a dead person? in kenya we worship idols. Hapana wekewa vikwazo na maiti. In the grave where we are all going there are no burials. Let people attend burials while alive
