Residents of Mutomo village in Gatundu South Constituency, Kiambu County were treated to a spectacle Tuesday, September 6, when they found an elderly man abandoned near Mutomo Graveyard along Gatundu-Mutomo Kenyatta Road.
Samuel Kibure, 90, was a prominent businessman who worked with the Ministry of Agriculture before getting into financial difficulties due to his drinking habits, eDaily reports.
According to Mr. Kibure, he had been admitted at a Gatundu hospital before the Tuesday incident.
His son, a Nakuru resident, on Monday night, discharged him from the hospital and took him to his brother’s home in Karembu village in Gatundu South.
On the night of the incident, his nephews woke him up, wrapped him in a blanket, bundled him into a car and dumped him near Mutomo Graveyard, before speeding off at around 2 am Tuesday.
Mr. Kibure said that he was homeless as he had sold all his land and property.
He claims his children see him as a burden since he is paralyzed and that they have left him to die.
