Residents of Lugari, Kakamega County were shocked after a man identified as Victor Omulai conducted an expensive funeral for his chicken.
The man is from Maji Mazuri village .Mr. Joseph Victor Omulai was very distraught when his hen died.
“I bought seven chicks in 2018 and took care of them up to maturity but others were stolen and I was left with this one which had laid 12 eggs, just waiting for them to hatch, but unfortunately, somebody hit it, causing its death,” Omulai said.
The Kakamega man sang dirges, recited a Bible verse, prayed and buried his hen. Omulai buried his hen together with its eggs in a 3-feet-grave.
He then went ahead to cement the hen’s grave and inscribed the words ‘Rass Hen 2019’.
At night, Omulai played loud music until morning as is the norm in ‘disco matangas’.
Omulai vowed to always hold an anniversary for the hen.
