Mary Mose , the mother of the late Kenyan Model Esther Shanice Omwenga well known as Shan Wanita held a second funeral service for her daughter, yesterday 20th October 2023.

According to a video shared on social media, the service was attended by family members and friends.

Shan Wanita was buried on 29th September 2023 at Riverside Estate Kamulu.

Just a day before her burial, the model's mother claimed that her daughter's body was taken from Umash funeral home without her consent.

According to the mother, her daughter's paternal relatives took the body and buried her child without involving her in any of the send-off plans.

Speaking to interviewers, the  mother narrated the bond they shared owing to the fact she had given birth to Wanita when she was 16 years old.

She stated that she wanted her daughter’s body exhumed so that she could give her a decent sendoff before adding that payments had already been made through her lawyers and that she was hopeful for positive feedback from the court 

"I’ve filed for the order through the lawyers by Monday God willing. I got Shan when I was 16 years from 2, nilidropshule nikalea Shan. Shan, she was like my sister. It’s very painful, I haven’t seen even the body."

Wanita’s mother then pleaded with Kenyans to help her raise funds to give the beautiful model a befitting burial.
