Kenya: No more unidentified bodies accepted at Teso morgue

The Frapa Funeral Home Kocholya in Teso North has stopped accepting unidentified bodies delivered by police. Manager Judith Aluku said police have been directed to take such bodies to public mortuaries in Bungoma, Busia or Webuye districts.

“Such failures may compromise the facility’s hygiene, which has been operating efficiently since February 23. She was speaking to the Star at the funeral home yesterday.

Aluku said the move is meant to decongest the mortuary. “We only accept identified bodies brought in by relatives who collect them at the touch of a button,” she said.

Aluku said the home does not have an ambulance. Teso police boss Gladys Rutere said Frapa has the right to decide its operation policies.
