“I have gotten reports that there is an ex-president or another high profile individual at the home which I can confirm are not true, There is no heightened security. We have just had a lot of activity due to deaths resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic” he said.
The lee funeral home is known to offer mortuary and burial services to the rich people in Kenya. It is known to be used by renown business people, politicians and families.

Kenyans passing near the area had witnessed hightened security with military officers. At that time, it turned out that the body of (RTD) Major General Duncan Ireri was preserved there.
Afyer consultation with Charles Njonjo, the lee funeral home was created in 1987 by John S. Lee. Charles Njonjo was then a director of the nairobi hospital.
In an interview with KENYA’S media, Lee said, “I was told of the appalling state of City Mortuary. I was then being told to help people set up their funerals because they feared ending up at City Mortuary. I decided to take the chance,”
Since then, the home has been preferred by the high end kenyans due to the quality of services it offers.
