sonkoNairobi Governor Mike Sonko has said his administration will purchase additional land to be used as a cemetery for Muslim faithfuls.

The county government has identified a piece of land beside the Lang’ata cemetery to help the Muslim community inter their departed loved ones.

Burial is a sacred event for Muslims, a sign of last respect and a moment of prayer for the departed soul is held.

Sonko said Lang’ata cemetery which is the only public cemetery in Nairobi is now almost full.

“We have got land beside the Lang’ata cemetery but we will have to wait for the National Land Commission to be reconstituted so they can guide us on the buying process,” said Sonko.

He spoke on Thursday evening when he joined worshippers at Jamia Mosque in prayer and in breaking their fast.

President Uhuru and Yemeni Prime Minister Moin Abdulmalik also attended the prayers and breaking of the fast at the mosque.
