Kenya Maggero Memorial: Meeting At Continental Hotel On Friday
Kenyans will meet at Continental Hotel in Stockholm on Friday January 19th from 18.00 to plan the ”Kenya Memorial Service” for the late James Wuod Maggero. The meeting is being coordinated by Dr. Otieno Wariaro, Mr. Jared Aroka and Mr. Joshua Oyugi. All interested Kenyans have been invited to the meeting.
A proposal for the meeting was put forward last week after those who attended it took the view that they needed to mourn the late Maggero according to Luo culture. February 3rd was proposed as an appropriate date for the Memorial while it was also agreed that a planning meeting would be held earlier.
The meeting is also expected to come up with a statement taking a position on the controversial issues that have been surrounding Maggero’s burial, some of which have been discussed extensively at KSB. This includes the exclusion of Maggero’s family in Kenya from funeral arrangements and other thorny matters.
