According to his younger brother, Norman Nyagah, the deceased made it clear that his body should not be viewed as is often the case in most funerals.
He also instructed that no new suit should be bought for the prposes of his burial and chose what he should adorn to his grave.
The former Pentagon member made it clear that tghe suit should be ironed by his eldest son.
In touch with the inevitability of death, the deceased also chose his final resting place and specifically stated that he wanted to be buried next to his grandfather.
In addition, Nyagah made it clear that his body should be positioned in the grave with his head facing the Mbeere Hills in Embu County.
“Our grandfather used to tell us that if we were to encounter any problem, we would all run towards Mbeere Hills because that is where he hailed from,” stated Norman Nyagah.
Norman divulged that the family expects to host 1000 people during the burial, adding that strict adherence to Covid-19 protocols would be observed.
“We will do everything it takes to ensure nobody contracts Covid-19 during the burial. Every one will sanitise. We have also installed hand-washing facilities,” Norman stated.
The event will be streamed live on social media with mainstream media houses also set to air the event.
