A Kiambu family has placed two parallel obituaries for their deceased kin in a local newspaper.
The family of Lt. Col. (Rtd) David Njoroge Mwaura, who died last week, appears to be divided on his marital status.
The two death announcements bear the same message except for the marital status of the deceased, with the first one indicating that he was married to two wives while the second states he divorced the first wife.
One of the obituaries names Eunice Wanjiku as the first wife to the deceased while the other labels her as a former wife.
“Beloved husband to Alice Nyambura and Ex-husband to Eunice Wanjiku,” the first obituary reads in part.
The second obituary reads, “Beloved husband to Eunice Njeri and Alice Nyambura”.
Njoroge passed away on August 19th following a short illness and will be laid to rest on August 26th at his home in Giathieko, Kiambu County.
