More Money Raised in Stockholm Towards Karundi Mathenge’s Funeral
Since the last fund raising towards Karundi Mathenge’s funeral which was held on Friday, March 15th 2014, a new initiative by Karundi’s friends in Stockholm has netted fresh funds ahead of Karundi’s burial scheduled for Saturday, 22nd March 2014 in Nyeri, Kenya.
Susan, a Tanzanian lady (who was a close friend of Karundi before he left for Kenya) together with other friends who could not attend the March 15th harambee have raised Ksh 39.000 towards Karundi’s funeral expenses. This brings the total amount so far raised by Karundi’s friends in Stockholm to Ksh 103,346.
Speaking to KSB, Susan said that the money was sent to Karundi’s brother in Kenya today, Tuesday 18th March through Moneygram cash transfer services.
She said that the fund raising has been taking place for the last one week at her residence in Fitja after she decided with friends to set up an “Open House” at her residence to facilitate the harambee. Friends who missed the first harambee have been pouring in at her residence to make their contributions.
Susan said that the Open House is still on and that it will be closed on Friday, 21st March 2014 ahead of Karundi’s burial the following day. She said that no more funds will be raised after Karundi’s burial and urged all parties interested in making contributions to get in touch with her or attend the open House sessions at Krogarvägen 4 in Fitja. Susan thanked everybody who made contributions to make the exercise a big success. For further information about the on-going “Open House” session or to contribute, contact Susan at 0762492494.
