Natoa pole kwa familia ya marehemu walioibiwa huko Nairobi. Huyo mfanyakazi wa Mortuary ni mwanamke, tena kaibia maiti ya mpwa wa Rais wa Kenya. Atakiona cha mtema kuni! Hata bibi yangu alivyofariki hapa New York, USA, wafanyakazi hospitalini waliibia maiti yake. Walichukua pete yake ya ndoa ya dhahabu.
Umaskini mbaya, lakini jamani kuibia maiti? Hawagopi? Huko TZ kuna ndugu yangu alifariki katika ajali ya basi. Vibaka waliiba vitu vyake pamoja na kitambulisho. Kibaka naye kafa siku hiyo hiyo! Tulijua kwa vile maiti ya kibaka ilikutwa na kitambulisha cha marehemu ndugu yangu/
The Daily Nation newspaper said Rose Oyungu, 54, stole a gold watch and mobile telephone from the dead nephew of Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, as well as gold jewellery from the man's fiancée.
Both of the victims died on the first day of last month's attack on the upmarket mall by Al-Qaeda-linked gunmen, which in total left at least 67 people dead.
"It is unfortunate that an African can steal from the dead," prosecutor Wycliffe Sifuna was quoted as telling a bail hearing in court on Thursday.
Defence lawyers managed to secure bail for the accused, a widowed mother-of-six. The case is due to go to trial on November 25.
The accusations against the woman come as Kenyan security forces are also facing allegations that troops looted the mall during and after the four-day siege.
Kenyan media reported widely on the ransacking of the shopping centre, and security camera footage from the mall broadcast at the weekend showed soldiers carrying white plastic bags.
Shop owners -- including a top end jewellery store as well as others selling mobile telephones, watches, cameras, expensive suits and lingerie -- said their stores were completely looted.
On Tuesday the army chief said some goods were taken for safekeeping, and police responded to the media accusations by summoning two journalists for questioning -- although the summons was withdrawn following an outcry.
