A small introduction


The 100-acre cemetery was declared full 20 years ago. But bodies continue to arrive every day for burial. Sometimes it is not even possible to bury them the requisite six feet under, but families have limited options. Lang’ata cemetery is divided between a “permanent” and “temporary” section. At Lang’ata Cemetery, permanent graves for adults cost Sh30,000, children Sh4,000, and infants Sh2,000. Those from outside Nairobi are charged Sh40,000.

The county government of Nairobi has been recommending cremation, saying it is affordable. City Hall charges Sh16, 500 to cremate adults and Sh15, 500 for children


The Cemetery is about 7 kilometres west of the city center on Langata Road, which is the main road to Nairobi nation Park.

The cemetery is adjacent to Langata Residential. It is reached by way of a long driveway off Langata Road.


There are circumstances where the county has been forced to recycle graves to bury the dead at the Lang’ata Cemetery. The law allows the county to dispose of unclaimed bodies that pile up at county morgues.

In the cemetery, there are unmarked graves, those that do not have tombstones and are not frequently visited by families. There are other graves that have no claimants and are very old.


In 2009, City Hall lost millions of shillings after the then City Council of Nairobi paid Sh283 million for 48.5 acres in Mavoko, Machakos county.

The land was valued at Sh24 million. Former Local Government PS Sammy Kirui and former City Council of Nairobi Clerk John Gakuo were jailed for three years for their role in the cemetery land scandal.
