Thousands of Kenyans on Saturday attended a mass in honour of environmentalist and Nobel laureate Wangari Maathai, who died of cancer two weeks ago.

Mourners pushed and shoved attempting to get in but the police managed to control them, Professor Karanja M. Njoroge, Executive Director, The Green Belt Movement had to get atop the vehicle to calm them down

Her coffin, draped in the Kenyan flag, was driven in a black hearse to the park and later at Kariokor crematoriam

Kenyans dubbed her Mama Miti, or Mother of Trees.
