Nyahururu County Referral hospital morgue on the spot after body disappeared

The Nyahururu County Referral Hospital morgue was in the spotlight on Wednesday after a body disappeared.

A family, from Ngai Ndeithia location in Leshao Pondo ward, refused to pick the body they were given as an “alternative”.

The family were at the mortuary very early in the morning waiting to collect the body of 72-year-old Raphael Kimani Desajo for burial at their home, only to their surprise the body was nowhere to be seen.

Many families who had picked the bodies of their kins from the mortuary in the last one week were called to the Nyahururu DCI office in an bid to trace whether the missing body was buried by one of them mistakenly.

The drama was also passed to another family in Njabini after they were called by the DCI and ordered to stop the burial of their kin until a member of the Desajo family was sent from Nyahururu to confirm whether the body was their's.

But the body was not identified as Desajo.

Ms Rachael Wanjira, the deceased’s wife, said the physical appearance of her late spouse didn't resemble those on the body that they collected.

She added that they declined attempts by mortuary attendants to convince them into picking the body of another person.
