It costs between Sh600,000 and Sh700,000 to transport a body to DRC, which is beyond the means of many Congolese families living in Kenya.  As such, many have resorted to burying their dead in Nairobi.

A huge number of the fallen, who have been buried here, are Congolese musicians who serenaded many a Nairobi resident before their call to the afterlife.

Sadly, most of these men and women were buried without much fanfare.
