A family from Nyao Tea Zone in Lurambi Constituency, Kakamega County, is pleading for help following the demise of their son.
The late Vincent Kubili (pictured), 35, was diagonised with Multiple Myleoma early this year but later died at Reale Hospital in Eldoret where he had been admitted.
According to a close family member, the body of the former Nakumatt Supermarket employee at Bungoma Branch is being preserved at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret where the Reale Hospital, which doesn’t have a mortuary, is demanding for Ksh 2,304,365 before releasing the body for burial.
The NHIF has only sorted sorted Ksh 203,000.
“His close friend, Eric Amwayi, has also called on well wishers to support the family during this trying moment.
His family is appealing to well wishers to contribute through the bill number PAYBILL NUMBER 222861 Account Name: Vincent Khashiya Funds (name of the deceased).
Vincent’s death comes barely months after his family lost two other members in November last year – a brother via road accident and his dad after the shock resulting from the son’s death.
“We are also urging the County Government headed by Governor Wycliffe Oparanya to intervene so that we can burry our son.” Said his uncle, only identified as Jomba Vincent.
Our efforts to reach Governor Oparanya’s reactions were fruitless.
