Mystery surrounds the dumping of six mutilated bodies in a mortuary.
According to sources at the Central Provincial General Hospital mortuary in Nyeri, the police from Kiganjo, a few kilometres from the town, took the bodies to the mortuary last weekend.They were marked unknown.
Three of the bodies were burnt, while the others had deep wounds inflicted with sharp objects.
The source said mortuary administrators were waiting for approval from the Hospital Superintendent, Dr Victor Muyembe, before they could dispose of the bodies.
On his part, the doctor said he was waiting for a report from the police about the unidentified bodies. But Nyeri OCPD, Mr Limbitu Kirunya, denied that the police had dumped bodies at the mortuary.
“You will excuse me for now because I am not aware of what you are talking about,” said the OCPD, before hanging up the telephone.
