Two weeks after a Kenyan construction engineer, Ronald Bundi, his wife Veronica and their three daughters were buried, the couple’s two surviving sons are stranded at the Coast General Hospital in Mombasa despite having been discharged. The couple and their three daughters were killed in a road accident which occurred on Christmas Day, 25th 2021, along Nairobi-Mombasa Highway.
The family members were travelling from Mombasa to Kisii when their car collided with another vehicle. The two sons suffered broken legs and were rushed to the Moi Referral Hospital in Voi and later moved to Cost General Hospital for specialized treatment.
On January 7, 2022, the late Ronald Bundi, his wife Veronica and three daughters were laid to rest at their home in Kisii County. The surviving sons attended the funeral on wheelchairs.
According to the sisters of the late Veronica Bundi, the two children aged 3 and 10 years old are not able to access their home after the brother to late Ronald Bundi locked the house in an alleged tussle over ownership of his properties.
Harriet Gesare, sister to late Veronica, said the doors was locked by the children’s uncle making it difficult to even change their clothes.
“Changing the children’s clothes is even hard because we cannot access the house,” she stated.
They claim that after the burial, Dennis Nyamweno, the elder brother to late Ronald Bundi took control of all the properties owned by the deceased and kept the children stranded.
According to late Veronica’s other sister, Rose, the Bundi’s family wants the children to stay with one of their paternal uncles.
“They have never stayed with these children and doesn’t want the children to inherit their late parent’s properties,” she stated.
She further accused Bundi’s brother Dennis of not caring about the children of his late brother and instead prioritizing material wealth.
The children’s plight touched the late Bundi’s friends and neighbours, who are demanding justice. Citizen Digital in a phone conversation with Dennis Nyambweno, said he agreed that indeed he has the keys to the house and that together with two of his siblings, they have occupied the late Bundi’s house. He however denied neglecting the two children.
