The unionist was hurriedly buried at 6.00am
Hundreds of mourners who on Wednesday turned up for the burial of former Nakuru KNUT branch executive Secretary Kuria Njau in Njoro Nakuru county were disappointed after they found that the comical unionist was hurriedly buried at 6.00am.
The rush was necessitated by a court order that was to be served to the family by a lady said to have been sired by the deceased out of wedlock.
Neighbours at his Subuku home were not spared as they found flowers already laid on the grave.
Even journalists who had received official invitation letters from the current branch executive secretary Mungai Muhia were caught by surprise as they met most of the mourners leaving for home as early as 10.00am while others were busy taking early lunch.
Family members refused to speak to the media and only KNUT secretary general Wilson Sossion conveyed a message of condolence on behalf of the teaching fraternity countrywide.
He describes the late Njau as a courageous unionist who went out of his way to use his personal resources to support the less fortunate, the church and also KNUT.
The nominated MP reiterated that KNUT as a union will soldier on in advocating for the welfare of teachers by all means.
