A Kenyan family has until July 6 to bury their son, who died in the US on May 25, announced the US government.
Evans Gathaga’s remains were recovered from a creek near his house by police officers days after he went missing.
Authorities in the US alleged the deceased could have accidentally slipped and fallen into the river. He was a truck driver in Atlanta, Georgia.
The US government said should Gathaga’s family fail to bury him by Tuesday next week, they will dispose of the body.
They earlier reported that the body could not be transported to Kenya since it was found in a bad state.
Attempts by the deceased’s mother, Margaret Gathaga, to travel to the US have not borne fruit after the US embassy in Nairobi rejected her visa applications. The reason behind the rejection she was not told.
Margaret had sought a review of the decision, but she is yet to receive a response.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
