Body Chopped Into Parts Found Dumped In Machakos

Police in Machakos have stepped up their investigation into the death of a man whose body was discovered on the Nairobi-Garissa highway on Sunday, November 13.

According to a police report, the death of the man identified as Joseph Kyalo Nzui was not caused by an accident.

The Sunday incident, according to authorities, was murder disguised as a road accident.

The incident had previously been reported as a hit-and-run accident at Kithyoko Police Station in Masinga sub-county.

“It was reported by area assistant chief Mr. Daniel Nzomo Muthoka that there was hit and run accident along Matuu – Kithyoko road about 10 kilometres South West of the station,” a police report read in part.

Officers from the station arrived at the scene and discovered a lifeless body of a young man lying down and covered with a cloth.

Police said there were traffic officers present who later determined that the incident was not an accident but rather murder.

According to police, the 42-year-old man’s body had deep, sharp cuts on the head and stomach. Some parts were also missing.

“Also, his private parts were severed off,” an officer said.

The team believes the deceased was killed elsewhere and the body dumped on the highway.

“This body might have been dumped here after he was murdered elsewhere. There are no signs that he was killed in a road accident,” another officer told a local publication.

The body of the deceased was moved to Mbaku mortuary awaiting autopsy.
