Kirinyaga: Shock as Man's Headless Body is Found in River Nyamindi

Residents of Mbiri village in Kirinyaga County are reeling in shock after the headless body of a man was found floating in River Nyamindi on Sunday.

Women fetching water from the river spotted the body and raised the alarm, attracting scores of residents.

On seeing the body, the residents fled in panic and reported the matter to Kianyaga Police Station.

Moments later, officers arrived at the scene and retrieved the body of the victim, who is yet to be identified, and took it to Kerugoya Referral Hospital mortuary.

"We are still in shock after seeing a body whose head had been chopped off," said one of the residents, Mr Kimotho Munyi.

Kirinyaga East Police Commander Anthony Wanjuu said the man was killed elsewhere and dumped into the river within the area to cover up the evidence.

Lately the number of shocking and mysterious death in the country have been on the rise.

However a huge number of missing kenyans have been found dead after some worrying abductions.

It still remains unclear as to who is orchestrating these acts with many of these incidents either being cult related or done by gangs after deals went sour.
