Residents to Demonstrate Over Wanjiru Burial Delay

Residents of Nyahururu will today join relatives and friends of the late Olympic Marathon Champion Samuel Wanjiru in a peaceful protest to express their anger over intruders, whom they claim are sabotaging the burial of the fallen hero.

In a meeting held at Olympia hotel in Nyahururu yesterday, the residents said Wanjiru's mother Anne Wanjiru is not solely to blame for the burial arrangement crisis, but has been held hostage by businessmen and lawyers who want a protracted legal battle in order to benefit from Wanjiru's property.
