Nakuru Muslim leader Fadhili Msuri said Azubedi will be buried tomorrow.

“He will be buried tomorrow after 4 pm prayers at the Muslim cemetery in Bondeni. Funeral prayers will be held at Bondeni mosque during the 4 pm normal prayers,” Msuri said.

The deceased was among the richest people in Nakuru.

He has left a string of prime properties within Nakuru’s CBD as well as in swanky suburbs like Milimani.

It is his simple lifestyle where he led a squalor life despite being a billionaire that left many baffled.

Despite owning massive property, he never moved out of Bondeni slum.

He also had only one car which was very old.
