A 36-year old man from Kafulani village, Kayafungo location, Kaloleni Sub County who went missing on the eve of Christmas has been found dead.
Karisa Mitingi’s decomposing body was found in a bush by a man who was looking after cows with a rope round its neck. He had left his home in the evening without informing his family members where he was headed.
His sister Jumwa Mitingi said the family did not bother to look for him as he usually went out to take mnazi liquor without informing the family and suspected he committed suicide.
“As a family, we never thought anything could happen to our brother being on the eve of Christmas and every member went on preparing for the day unperturbed,” she said.
Kaloleni OCPD Kennedy Osando who confirmed the incident said the body was removed to Coast general hospital for post mortem examination to ascertain the cause of death.
He cautioned villagers against speculating on the cause of death saying the fact the body had a rope round the neck does not necessarily mean he had committed suicide as he could have been killed elsewhere and then hanged.
