Adoptive Mother’s Grief and Outrage

Sheila’s adoptive mother’s sorrow was evident. Her anger was particularly directed towards the family of Jack Bamboo, Sheila’s boyfriend and the prime suspect in her murder. The presence of Bamboo’s family at the burial only intensified her emotions. She vehemently denied their claim as in-laws, insisting their relationship was purely one of friendship.

Cultural Considerations

Luo traditions played a significant role. According to their customs, a woman cohabiting with a man cannot be buried at his home unless a dowry has been paid. Since this was not the case with Bamboo, Sheila’s body was brought to Odoyo’s residence, fulfilling the cultural requirement for burial at the home of the man who paid the dowry.
