"It Dawned on Me That I Was In Mortuary When Attendant Said I Wasn't Dead" Joyce Sadly Confesses.

Kenyans vote in national elections every five years. The findings can be disputed at times, resulting in turmoil. This can start as early as the nominations stage. Many people will never forget the post-election violence of 2008. Thousands of people were left homeless, while others lost their lives as well as the lives of their loved ones.

Joyce Chepkemoi is one of the victims who will be remembered for the rest of her life.

She has gone through a lot of trauma.

Joyce tells how 12 armed men barged into their home in Kuresoi North, Molo, and ordered her and her husband to remove their clothes before beating them.


This happened in early 2008, at the height of the post-election violence.

She recalls being beaten and then ending up in the morgue.


"The only thing I could hear outside were people conversing.

When the attendant said,'kwani client ameamka tena,hakuwa amekufa? (the customer is awake, wasn't she dead?)' it hit me that I was in the Mortuary. I had a feeling I was in the morgue "Chepkemoi confesses.

This was confirmed by the 'Nation Africa' on Twitter.


In the run-up to the next general election, the lady is campaigning for peace.

She speaks with students at educational institutes.


Her body has lifelong scars.

This admission comes as the government prepares to map out the most risky regions ahead of the election.


Overall, Kenyans' hearts should be filled with serenity.

Elections should not be used to divide us.

Kenya is a single entity.
