Photography provides an opportunity to record fond moments for individuals and families. Many will go out for those special sessions and seek alluring scenery to capture those beautiful memories.
But can you imagine that after a successful day, taking some cute family photos, the pictures are then used to tell a sad story about you?
A family from Nyakahura in Kangema, Murang’a County, is mourning the deaths of five of its members who perished in a grisly road accident.
In a story published on Facebook by journalist Gakure Roba, the five had just participated in a family event in Makueni County when they were involved in the fatal crash in Wote, as they headed back home to Murang’a.
The victims were two women, a man and two children aged four and 10.
Moments before meeting their untimely deaths, they had taken beautiful photos of the event, unknowingly immortalising the moment.
Their bodies were ferried to Murang’a Hospital mortuary, with the funeral arrangements starting immediately.
Photos seen by Litkenya.com showed a number of their family members overwhelmed by grief as they viewed the remains of their kin.
