Mourners scampered for safety during a burial ceremony of a Jubilee supporter as two men engaged fight on Saturday over her body.
Davis Barasa and Tom Wekesa being separated by mourners on Saturday in Bungoma.
The two men fought over the body of Catherine Naliaka alias Mama Brenda making majority of mourner run for safety.
Drama unfolded after the current husband, Tom Wekesa, delivered his speech and narrated the struggle he and her late wife underwent while she was sick.
At some point, mourners were moved to tears as they listened to Wekesa’s struggles in trying to save his wife.
Wekesa said the first Bungoma governor, Ken Lusaka, had helped in off-setting some of the medical bills at Mediheal Hospital in Eldoret.
It was at that point that the master of ceremony invited the deceased ex-husband, Davis Barasa, with whom she had sired 5 children.
Upon taking the microphone, Barasa narrated how they had lived happily in their ancestral home until domestic quarrels led to their immediate break-up.
“It was not an easy decision for a man who has sired five children to allow her body to be buried by another man, who has only sired one child. I made a bold decision but is still painful,” narrated Barasa.
That statement appeared to have infuriated Wekesa, who immediately attacked Barasa but mourners rushed to his rescue.
Minutes later, the burial committee chairman said the issue had been resolved and mourners proceeded to bury the deceased.
