A moment of razzmatazz and chaos has been created during the burial of the late Ohangla Musician Lady Maureen, a after a 35 year old man stopped every moving object to make an acute announcement that Lady Maureen was his ex wife and therefore he deserves all the respects to be accorded the body for burial at his homestead.
The man alleges that he met Ohangla way back before she could even peep into singing industry, and the two had a kid who is said to be 12 years now.
They say “First love never fades” There have been many controvercies regarding late Queen of Ohangla Lady Maureen’s burial ranging from a site to whoever will take care of the coffin.
A few days ago, Esther Akoth (Akothee) posted a very touching instagram statement on how perplexed she was upon hearing the news of her demanding to buy the coffin despite the fact that it was already taken care of.
Yesterday,a man identified as Jack shocked many when he came out claiming that the deceased was his first love. Jack, a gold miner at Nyatike who was among the mourners had gone to view Lady Maureen’s corpse at Ojele Memorial hospital in Migori said that despite the fact that he had not paid dowry to the parents of the deceased, he wanted to fulfil the promises of their love which barely lasted 6years due to reasons best known to them.
“Achieng was my wife even though I had not taken dowry to her family. She requested me to burry her if she died first and promised to burry me if i passed on before her” said Jack.
“I was willing to burry Lady Maureen to fulfil the love promise we made to each other but the family rejected.” He added.
Charles Ochieng, Lady Maureen’s brother and the family’s spokesman declined the claims adding that many people gave requests on phobe calls but none of them made efforts or follow ups.
