    Outrage as more than 20 phones and handbags are stolen at Monica Kimani's burial in Nakuru

    A bunch of fake mourners streamed at murdered Kilimani woman Monica Nyawira Kimani’s burial in Gilgil, Nakuru County, on Friday and spread more terror.
    The fake mourners stole at least 20 smartphones and handbags during the funeral that was televised on several TV stations as Kenyans continue to follow Monica’s shocking story.
    On Sunday, the family condemned mourners who stole valuables after people started complaining that they have lost their phones and Handbags.
    “Why would fake mourners take advantage of Monica’s death and inflict more psychological injuries on the family by stealing people’s valuables even before we buried my beloved daughter?” said Monica’s dad Paul Kimani Ngarama. 
    According to the bishop, he had to pay after one mourner approached him complaining that he had lost his phone worth Ksh 7,000. He also added that another from South Sudan lost a very expensive iPhone.
    “I was forced to go to my pocket, and give the young woman Sh7,000 to buy another phone, because I felt it was not fair for her to go home minus her phone after coming from far to mourn with my family,” he said.
    “I advised them to report [the cases] so that the phones are tracked and recovered,” added the Bishop.

    Other also took photos of Monica and lied to the crowd gathered that it was a family project. They sold Monica’s photos for Ksh 50 bob.
    “Many people bought the pictures because they thought it was a family project,” he said. 
    “I strong advise families to be vigilant and check newcomers pretending to mourn with them.  It was just by luck that vehicles were not stolen or vandalised. Lack of security was an oversight by us and government”
