The family of an elderly man has come under sharp criticism after they dumped the near graveyard and left him to die.
According to reports, the man whose name is Samuel Kiburi was once a wealthy businessman who had a job at the Ministry of Agriculture.
This was before his bad drinking habits finally caught up with him after spending all his money on alcohol.
The 90-year-old man says he was admitted at Gatundu Hospital before his son came and took him to his brother’s home in Karembu Village, Gatundu.
Kiburi also recounted to journalists how his nephews woke him up in the middle of the night, wrapped him in a blanket and took him to Mutomo Cemetry where he was dumped.
They reportedly sped off after leaving him there only to be found the next morning by area residents.
He says he was taken to his brother’s home as he had sold his properties and spent the money drinking.
Kibure believe his family and close friends abandoned him because he can’t walk or fend himself.
“They see me as a burden since I am paralysed. They have left me to die,” he told journalists.
