A University of Nairobi lecturer has been arrested after police discovered the decomposing body of her 13-year-old son in their house in Nairobi’s South B residential estate.

Nairobi Area police boss Philip Ndolo, who confirmed the incident, said the officers discovered the body at around 6 pm on Wednesday.

The police officers investigating the scene, however, confirmed that nothing was stolen from the house, and they are working to establish what happened to the boy.
