It has now emerged that two surviving sons of the Bundi of the family that perished in a road accident on Christmas day have been discharged from hospital but have nowhere to go.
According to Citizen TV, the brother of their deceased dad Mr. Bundi locked their house in Mombasa and disappeared claiming not to know the two Bundi sons.
The two boys aged 10 and 3 now have two problems to deal with(losing all their parents and being homeless with nowhere to go).
Burial preparations are underway at Itumbe location in Kisii county for the five Bundi family members who died in a road accident along Mombasa road.
Ronald Bundi, his wife Veronica Bundi, Marion Bundi, Natalia Bundi and Claire Bundi perished in a road accident along Mombasa road on December 25, 2021, at Engwata area in Mackinnon, near Voi.
A source familiar with the unfortunate accident reported as below:
“This is a very painful obituary posting where almost an entire family perished in one accident.
As the world marked Christmas, Ronald, a man well known in Diani as a contractor, was also driving home to Kisii. You must have seen on various social media forums and in the news about the accident where a family had perished at Engwata.
While he was in his lane some mad BMW driver decides to come into his lane and crashed head on while the BMW burst into flames burning the occupant beyond recognition it left an entire family dead save for their two young boys who are currently in hospital who will now grow up without their loving parents.
Late Ronald like many of us found new life at the Kenya coast and he made his mark in construction as a man who walked the narrow path of integrity. Hard work and commitment were his middle and surnames. Many homes in Diani and even Mombasa would have the footprint of Ronald.
As schools reopen the desks of those little girls will be empty and their young friends not knowing what really happened, painful indeed.
Thanks Stephanie Fernandes for taking time to narrate to me who the real Ronald was. Fare thee Ronald and your family.” It read.
In the meantime, the news of two Bundi sons being locked out of their apartments led to mixed reactions from Kenyans as follows:
“When did blood cease being thicker than water. It’s sad that these children are suffering yet it’s not their fault things went as they did. This man should know that our lives are in the hands of the Most High God.”
“I wish there was a way of haunting the so called siblings…so many kids are suffering out here.i feel for the kids aki..”
“It’s so painful indeed.I feel for this kids,they are morning their parents and another useless human is giving them more headache. may that man’s generation be cursed.”
“This story is heartbreaking 😢 saaad indeed 😭. God please intervene, safe and favour these two Bundi sons.”
“Back then, I didn’t care if I died the next morning. But after being a father, I realized how much I needed to stay alive for my kids. It is a cruel world. Blood relation doesn’t even make it less cruel. Such stories make me sick to the stomach.”
“I secretly feared for those children. But government should just take over for some cases.”
“I guess the first topic in form one orientation should be HOW TO WRITE A WILL. Most of us are so clueless on that. You make money, your siblings “kill” you and demand to inherit everything you left. If your wife refuses to be inherited, they chase her away and treat your kids like slaves. It is sickening to see orphans suffering in villages and you can’t support them because utaambiwa “usiingililie mambo ya familia.” And if you insist they say you are eyeing the widow!”
“I almost shed tears when I saw this story and had to confirm with a relative who is a workmate…the mistrust and greed from both families is nauseating…may God take care of this vulnerable orphans..some people are so heartless especially from father’s side.”
“This means these guys have also taken over Bundi’s Bungalow in the village. Very unfortunate indeed let God protect this innocent children.”
“Kwani how wealthy was this guy that every rat is coming out of it’s hole to demand something?we don’t see this scenario from poor people.kila mtu atafute pesa yake.”
“Infact the peoples who will wish your death when you’re successful rich is your closest relatives believe me or not so that they can inherit your wealth and let your kid suffer.”
“There was failure of colossal proportions. This story did not just drop from heaven. The welfare of this kids should have been discussed before the burial of the parents. We are all here arguing out of emotions typical kenyan way. In a week’s time this too unfortunately will be swept under the rug.”
“Please dont say “I will die for my kids”….no just stay alive for your kids to get old enough to fight for themselves …Especially when ua mother is gone…its most likely that you are on your own… Oooh God heal your children…we are a sick society!!”
“😭😭😭that wicked creature in uncle form should be ejected from that house by force 😏 Yaani hata mwezi hujaisha since those kids lost their parents na ashanyakua nyumba yao..he Must have had a hand in what happened.”
“Aki its so sad and painful where were they when their brother was working hard?they should just die demons ifeel pain for those kids considering that there’s no security or law in Kenya who will fight for them? My God.”
“Let’s not even forget this men who prefer writing their siblings in their will than their wives they end up putting their kids in desperate lives”
“We live in a wicked world…let everybody work hard to make his own money stop inheriting things you didn’t work hard for…hii tabia you just sit hopeless waiting your family member or your father to die so you inhelt things you didn’t work for without knowing he/she has a family to inhelt must stop everybody should wake up and word hard to make your own money.”
“Am sure he has the interest of his brother’s kids at heart. If indeed he is trying to lock out his extended family from interfering with his late brother’s wealth, let him lock the house. The kids maybe young to see what he is trying to do for them since it clearly seems some relatives from the wife’s side who may not like the deceased husband’s brother are beginning to look more important in the kids lives than the family where they actually belong. Who brought the kids to the attention of the media?”
“Before you die,what plans have you put for your child/children?This nonsense of siblings ignoring your children when you die is sickening.You work so hard to build a dynasty for your kids and when you die,siblings come and disorient everything.
Now we have two kids stranded in a hospital after losing two parents and three siblings,just because a brother has decided he MUST dictate the brother’s property…hii tamaa ya vitu sio zako hutoka wapi?My heart bleeds for those two boys.That is mediocrity and uchawi of the highest order.
Si kila mtu atafute Mali yake?I pity our children walai and may God give parents wisdom to make sober decisions tusiwache watoto wetu wakiteseka.ugaidi tuwache.
Lakini some siblings hapana,wakufe tu…Saddest story of 2022.”
