Garissa Senator and BBI Chairman Yusuf Haji died in the early hours of Monday morning, 15th February.

Haji was buried in less than 24 hours at the Lang’ata Muslim Cemetery as per Muslim burial customs, despite belonging to the Kenyan elite class, being a very influential politician in his community and enjoying the trappings of power.

Despite his stature, he was buried like any other Muslim. It didn’t matter who he was while alive.

According to Muslim burial rites, a deceased is rarely transported. Instead, one is buried where he or she passed away within 24 hours.

The burial always takes place where death (maut) happens. This is why Senator Haji was buried in Nairobi and not Garissa.

His remains were wrapped in a simple plain cloth (the Kafan) which costs less than Sh. 500.

After that, instead of a coffin, in line with the Muslim burial customs, the deceased is transported to the mosque in a Janaza that is returned after use and reused by another family.

In the case of Haji, his Janaza prayers were conducted on Monday at 4.00 pm in South C Mosque and thereafter the burial was done at the Lang’ata Muslim Cemetery.

While Hailing Haji’s simple burial, Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr. said we have alot to learn.

His burial was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga among other leaders.
