The coffin of the late Ebrima Solo Kuruma, a UDP supporter who died in state custody recently has been finally released for befitting burial held at his home village in Sandu Darsilami on Friday, 27th August, 2016.
His burial according to family sources was well attended by sympathisers across the country including members of the United Democratic Party led by Aji Yam Secka, the deputy party leader and assistant secretary general.
Speaking to Foroyaa Lamin Cham, UDP youth coordinator of the Kanifing Municipality who also coordinated the burial process on behalf of the party said they were able to get the body from Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital on Thursday, 26th August and departed for Sandu Darsilami where the burial took place after 5pm prayer. It was delivered to them in a coffin by Mile Two prison doctors.
He said doctors at EFSTH have carried out the postmortem in the presence of the deceased’s cousin and nephew representing the family but they could not give them any set date on which the result will be ready.
He also informed that both the family and party executive have not received the death certificate of Kuruma as they were told that the certificate will be given along with the postmortem result. He said they will however make a follow up.
According to Cham, the late Kuruma is survived by 4 wives, a number of children and his father.
