KABOGO - MERCY KEINO murder DRAMA – SHOCKING revelations that she was killed elsewhere’News 07:12
Monday, the 10th of December 2012 - A police officer testifying before the probe team into the death of University of Nairobi student Mercy Keino today told the inquiry that there was no truth in the suggestion that her death was a simple hit and run and that she was instead killed elsewhere and then dumped on Waiyaki Way.
The officer constable, Thomas Obongi, told the inquiry that in his opinion Keino could not have been run over because the way he found her body was not consistent with such a finding;
“Both her legs and hands were broken and the head smashed. Part of her lower abdomen was open and intestines were coming out. I could not see the skull and moved around the area looking for it but I did not see it,” he added.
Obongi told the inquiry that Keino’s body would have been in a different state if it really had been a case of hit and run;
“There was minimal blood and no signs of body movement. There was no pool of blood to suggest she was hit by a vehicle which is the normal evidence in an accident.”
“I suspected it to be foul play, that the victim might have been killed elsewhere and dumped at the scene because in a normal accident, you find the victim’s shoes, belongings and a pool of blood which were all missing.”
Put on the spot by the prosecutor, Obongi said he was certain Keino was not run over by a vehicle as had been earlier suggested;
“No. With the multiple injuries the body had and no traces of blood on the road, I can for sure say it was not a hit and run accident.”
The inquiry proceeds tomorrow.
