Kisumu County woman Rep Roza Akinyi Buyu has joined in condemning the hasty burial of a COVID 19 victim in Siaya County.
Buyu says even amidst the pandemic, the government cannot allow a human being to be buried like an animal.
Buyu says the action is despicable and the family is owed an apology.
She says it is traumatizing to see a loved one thrown into a shallow grave in the manner in which James Oyugis body was treated.
Buyu says they support the government fully in the fight against spread of corona virus but human dignity must be upheld.
She says the action will demoralize more Kenyans and add pain to families that are grieving for losing loved ones through the virus.
