Late Cigarette tycoon was a Freemason


The odd service witnessed during the burial of cigarette billionaire Wilfred Murungi left Kenyans and the rest of the world coining different theories behind the move.

The mastermind Tobbacco chairman Wilfred Murungi was laid to arrest in a shocking style that saw hundreds of mourners including relatives stopped from attending the ceremony.

Heavily armed security agents hired to guard the compound dramatically turned away mourners who had turned up at his home in Magutuini village, Tharaka-Nithi County.

In life Murungi lived a reclusive lifestyle and hardly mixed with villagers of his Magutuni.

This continued in death when he was strictly buried by vetted eight family members and relatives in a ceremony that lasted for less than one hour.

A group of men hired to dig his grave were asked to leave the compound and wait outside the gate only to be called back to fill it with soil.

Freemasonry is not a Christian institution though it has often been mistaken for such but members are known of performing fascinating and scary rites and rituals.

Many active and high-ranking priests and pastors in Kenya are Freemasons.

Top politicians, medical doctors, pharmacists, dentists, lawyers, engineers, teachers, accountants, architects, bankers, judges, pilots, journalists, and some of Nairobi wealthiest businessmen are members of the Freemason.

Here is the list of notable Kenyans who are members of the Freemasons:

  1. Ambrose Rachier- Gor Mahia Chairman
  2. Moody Awori-former Vice President
  3. The late Nicholas Biwot
