Detectives in Nairobi have arrested a man whose wife died on New Year's Eve after a backstreet abortion went horribly awry.
Richard Onyango, the said husband, was arrested by DCI detectives alongside Francis Messo and Richard Orambo.
DCI says Francis and Richard operate Busanzi Health Clinic in Dandora Phase 4, and Watergate Medical Centre in Mathare Area 1, respectively.
The pregnant woman's body was found dumped along Outering Road on New Year’s Eve. "The body which had been wrapped in a white bedsheet was discovered dumped in a storm water tunnel near Shell petrol station along the busy road, with preliminary findings indicating that the body may have been murdered elsewhere and dumped at the scene by unknown persons," reports the DCI.
Detectives based at DCI Starehe conducted intensive investigations that led to the arrest of the suspects. The sleuths allege that the woman's husband first tried to procure the abortion with the help of the two clinics "but when the patient developed complications, they opted to rush her to another backstreet clinic in Kiambu.
"It is while on their way to Kiambu that the patient lost her life and the trio dumped her body in the storm water tunnel in a bid to cover their tracks."
The trio is currently being processed to answer to charges of murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the penal code.
