Lee Funeral Home has always found itself trending whenever a high-profile Kenyan dies.
It is also the place where bodies of these high profiles are kept until the burial date.
The funeral home also offers exquisite transport services for the VIP and they have a black limousine for that, which transports bodies to their final resting places.
The late Education CS George Magoha on Wednesday became the latest high-profile official to ride in the car.
The Mercedes Benz Hearse KAW 091V gained popularity after it emerged to be the preferred last ride for prominent personalities.
It has been selected to carry Magoha’s casket during today’s caravan and the funeral service that is set to be held on Thursday.
The Benz has carried the bodies of high-profile leaders including the late billionaire Businessman Jacob Juma, politician Njenga Karume, Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore and former Ministers John Michuki, George Saitoti, Soita Shitanda and William Ole Ntimama.
The black Benz also carried two former Kenyan presidents; Daniel Moi and Mwai Kibaki and former first lady, Lucy Kibaki.
Apart from the casket, the car also carries three, thus the driver and two are family members of the deceased.
The driver of the Benz is normally under strict instruction where no phone calls are made, no music is played and does not interact with the bereaved family members.
In 2017, Lee Funeral Home Chief Operating Officer Paul van Brussel said that the hearse is worth Sh10 Million and it then cost Sh65,000 to hire for one day.
However, he noted that the price changes with respect to the distance covered and the number of days hired.
