Photo: Woman's body exhumed on claims her husband had not fully paid her dowry in Kenya

The body of a 28 year old Kenyan woman, Alice Kemunto Bundi was exhumed from her grave on January 27th, just a day after she was buried at her matrimonial home in Nyamatoki village, after her family complained that her husband had not completely paid her bride price and had no right to claim her corpse.


The family of the mother of four who was four months pregnant when she died, went to court and obtained an exhumation permit from the Kisii law court. Her family members also argued that they were not informed by the husband on what killed their sister nor were they carried along during her funeral arrangements.

The husband however provided a clinical report which states that his wife of six years died while trying to undergo an abortion.

Her in-laws confirmed that the dowry for late Alice had not been settled. “We had given them [Bundi’s family] one cow and KES 5 000 cash($48), though they were asking for KES 20 000($196),” said one of the in-laws in an interviewed

You don't know the full story..so do not pass judgement on her. It might be on the advice of her doctor or even a personal choice. It's nobody's business what she does with her uterus, it's between her and her God. Sad story.

Most people did not read to understand, the woman is married for six years, four children and pregnant for the fifth.
What do you think of her option in this hard times?

Most people did not read to understand what lead to the woman's death. A 28 years woman who was married for six years to a man that could not pay her dowry, had four children and pregnant for the fifth time in rural area, endemic with poverty and lack of Medicare. Her option i believed was to reduce the burden of having children the family cannot cater for.
May she rest in peace.

If that is the custom he should go do that, moreover its wrong to live with somebody daughter as wife without paying the necessary traditional rites. May she rest in peace.
