      @Paul Mambofiti….I hope you never have to bury anyone in your immediate family, but if you do, I hope people who see the announcement will have more respect for the dead and their family than you do. No one is asking you for your money. If you notice, it says, “for those who would like to help”. You don’t belong in that group, so keep your peace and keep it moving! Every family ought to have the choice to do what they want or need for their tragedies. Whether they have $50Billion or $5 is none of yours or anyone else’s business! You don’t want others telling YOU what to do if this were your story would you?
      Grow up, chap! Don’t stick your nose in others’ business if you don’t want others sticking theirs in yours. I’m sure your closet isn’t squeaky clean! NKT!

      Condolences to the family, and God bless us all. Yes even you @Paul!

        David, well said! I think that the tradition of helping with funeral and transportation for us in the diaspora (and I think for most Kenyans as well) is a show of respect to the departed and love to the people left behind – if you do not feel like joining in for that purpose, keep on with your life and leave those who WANT to help to do so. It most likely could be the friends are organizing this, and that is all it is. Even if the family is wealthy, the funds raised always help alleviate some of the burden and give comfort to the mourning, so let those who want to help, help.

        Condolences to the family, and God bless us all. Yes even you @Paul!

    @ Paul Mambofiti-your comments are insensitive and unecessary. Shame on you! If you have nothing nice and uplifting to say, don’t say it at all. This family is grieving and you do not know the need that they have. Its people like you who talk like this yet at harambees you give nothing, just eat and leave.
    I pray that you will never have to hear / read hurtful insensitive comments when you lose a loved one and are in need of support and encouragement.

    @ Paul Mambofiti that was just uncalled for but its always good to mourn with the family who have lost someone and if you feel you cant help the family with your MONEY please keep it to yourself and its not gonna turn to a warrant of arrest that anyone is gonna come looking for you. Geez you didnt have to go there. My condolences to the Kanyotu family.
    Paul Mambofiti please have a softer heart.
