A post moterm carried out at the Murang’a County referral hospital has revealed the cause of death of Elijah Obuong, a member of the four Kitengela friends whose body was found near Mukungai River.


The autopsy reorts indicate that Obuong had died of strangulation, before his body was dumped at the river side.
His body was found by sand havesters a day after they went missing and booked at the morgue as that of unidentified male adult.


His family members later identified the body positively as that of their kin, stating that it was intact and with very few bruises.


Samples from his stomach were also taken for further annalysis to establish if the four could have been poisoned at the Kitengela joint where they were last seen.


His untimely death hit hard the family, with the mother Carolyne Obuong still maintaining that his son was not a criminal, while wondering the degree of sin the son committed that equals his life.


“What mistake is this he did that is greater than his life? If by any chance it is the police, are they also not sinners for killing him?” Caroline posed.


Carolyne added that his son was a taunch SDA member who never even consumed alcoholic drinks, and was just a victim of circumstances.


“My son was a staunch Adventist and did not take alcoholic drinks. He only had friends of questionable character,” she said.


On the other hand another body picked picked metrers away from that of Obuong earlier believed to be that of his friend Jack has since been disowned by his people.


Cliff Ochieng brother to Jack is now calling upon the police to help them find their kin, whether dead or alive.
“I am kindly requesting, that if anyone knows of Jack’s whereabouts or has him somewhere, please help us trace him. Jack is a nice person and he has done nothing wrong,” his family pleaded.


The police are now searching for both Ochieng and Oduor. Imbai’s body was also found on Thursday at General Kago Funeral Home in Thika.
