Charles Mwende

Charles Mwende is forced to spend the night out in the cold at Kianjai Police Post with his wife's coffin. Together with his friends and family, Mwenda was permitted to travel from Malindi in Kilifi County to Meru County to have his wife’s burial on 28th May. Upon reaching Meru, Police at the Keeria roadblock force the bus to turn around and make the mourners go back to Malindi except for Mwende and the coffin, whom they abandon at Kianjai Police Post. Mwende has to sleep outside in the rain and cold while shielding the coffin under a stationary lorry. He proceeds to bury his wife the next day, with the police giving no explanation for their inhumane action
