Bodies of 11 quarry workers arrive in Nyeri

The  bodies of  11 quarry workers who were killed in Mandera County last week have arrived at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital Mortuary ahead of a mass funeral set to take place on Friday.

The bodies were ferried from Chiromo Hospital Mortuary in Nairobi in two administration police Lorries.

Nyeri County Executive in charge of public administration, Priscilla Wanyiri, said that the county government would take care of all mortuary fees incurred at the Nyeri morgue and facilitate transport to the venue where they will be laid to rest.

The deputy director of disaster management unit and incident commander at Chiromo Mortuary, Pius Masai, said that all bodies had been screened and identified by relatives before leaving the mortuary.

The deceased met their death after suspected Al-Shabaab assailants attacked Soko Mbuzi area in Mandera Town and killed fourteen people and injured 11 others.
