Mark Too’s body arrives in Eldoret amid Assassination claims – tight security

1483957The body of the late Mark Too has arrived at his Eldoret home for burial on Monday amid tight security.

Too’s widows, Mary and Sophie, along with family members escorted the body from Eldoret International Airport to Maziwa farm where he will be laid to rest.

Preparations for the ceremony started on Saturday, after the burial committee handed over funeral plans to Too’s family.

The development came following a court order stopping the burial after lawyer Simon Lilan filed a case seeking independent investigations into Too’s death.

Lilan claims that Too may have been killed because of politics and his vast wealth.

“I will not rest until i know that Too was not assassinated. Its not bad to know the truth,” Lilan said on Friday.

 He said if Too is buried, he will seek to have the body exhumed.

Heavy security has been deployed at Too’s home as the burial is expected to be attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto, among others.

Workers have also been deployed to erect tents at Too’s Maziwa farm, near the Eldoret International Airport.

County commissioner Abdi Hassan was seen at the home on Saturday but could not comment on what was going on.

In the past, Mark Too was forced to resign as an MP by former President Daniel Arap Moi in order  to clear way for current President Uhuru Kenyatta. That act left a bitter taste on Mark Too’s mouth who went on work quietly with Raila Odinga to check mate Uhuru. It appears he might have been silenced to prepare grounds for heavy rigging planned for this year in the Rift valley and elsewhere.
