There was drama at the home of the late Court of Appeal judge, James Odek, when relatives forced their way into his main house to organise for funeral programme.
A scuffle ensued when one of the caretakers denied them entry on grounds that he was under firm instruction from Odek’s wife not to open the door for anyone.
The incident that happened at the late’s rural home in Rarieda on Thursday, December 19, culminated into a fierce exchange of war of words between the clansmen and the caretakers who held their ground for about 20 minutes, Daily Nation reported.
When pressure and threats piled, the workers gave in and let the agitated relatives enter Judge Odek’s home to plan for the burial.
