Prosecutor’s Body Held Over Row With Enstranged Wife

The choice was made after his estranged wife filed a lawsuit in an attempt to stop the interment of her ex-husband. She particularly objected to being left out of the process.

The body of former senior prosecutor Fredrick Ashimosi Shitambasi cannot be released by Chiromo Mortuary, according to an injunction issued by a Nairobi court.
The choice was made after his estranged wife filed a lawsuit in an attempt to stop the interment of her ex-husband. She particularly objected to being left out of the process.
Purity Nyawira Mureithi claims in her petition to the court that she and her children were excluded from the plans made by the family of the former state prosecutor to bid him farewell.
Nyawira asserts that she is still the only surviving widow of the deceased even though there is a divorce proceeding at the Chief Magistrate’s chambers.
Edgar Kagoni, the principal magistrate of Milimani Commercial Court, has also certified the application as urgent for a hearing on August 8.
The former legal representative was found dead in his home, Pioneer Estate in Nairobi.
