Meet the Kenyan female morgue attendant whose boyfriend dumped her because she enjoys working with the dead

A Kenyan female morgue attendant whose love for her job ended her relationship, has revealed how interesting it has been for her working with the dead.

26-year-old Alice Awuor Omito who started working as a morgue attendant in 2015 with Star Mortuary in Kisumu, currently works with Rosewood Funeral Home in Rongo, Migori County.

According to her, she enjoys spending a better part of her working days with the dead and preparing the dead for burial makes her happy.
“I enjoy spending a better part of my working days with the dead. I can’t imagine staying away from them even for a single working day. I have to go and look at the bodies stored in freezers daily,” Awuor told eDaily.
Awuor, who dropped out of nursing school added: 
“I discontinued my studies in nursing and pursued mortuary science because of available job opportunities in the latter field. I don’t regret changing professions, not one bit.”
She noted that mortuary science is a field dominated by male workers, but said that it does not scare her as she is often chosen over her male colleagues to do certain tasks of preparing the dead for burial.

The mother of one added that contrary to many people’s belief that morticians often use hard drugs before getting down to work, she has never abused drugs.
“When I was new in this job I had fears and challenges handling the dead, but now I enjoy every bit of my work. I adapted so fast and I am comfortable,” she said.
On the challenges she has faced on the job, Awuor said she was dumped by her ex-partner after he learned about the job.
“My boyfriend recently dumped me when I told him that I work as a morgue attendant. Discrimination is just one of the several challenges I face for being a mortician. The challenges are normal though. No job is immune to challenges regardless its nature.”

See them shouting they can't date mortician. Meanwhile if its a yahoo plus boy now that has spent a week in a coffin in the cemetry, they'll be slipping into dm to date. Even other guys will start trying to form paddy. Kudos to her. It's just a job and someone has to do it.

A job is a job. I was talking of opening a funeral home somewhere in Lagos. Hm no be small thing o. Was told I must be possessed and need deliverance. But the truth is that it's a service that must be provided. People die everyday and need to be buried.
