Mutilated body of missing teacher found in Nyamira nurse’s house
The body of a teacher who went missing two days ago was on Sunday discovered in a house belonging to a nurse in Nyamira County.
The mutilated body of Mr Ezekiel Nkeere Gitangwa, 47, was found hidden in a room used for poultry keeping. The body was covered with a carpet.
Police had to break into the house of the Nyamaiya Health Centre-based nurse to access the body. But the health worker was not in the house.
“We received a report from the teacher’s wife Gladys Bonareri Achoki that her husband was missing,” read a police report.
The teacher was last seen at 9am on Friday, the same day he was reported missing.
“This is the same day when he was dropped by a boda boda rider at Egesieri village, West Mugirango location. A missing person report was circulated and a search mounted, leading investigators to the house belonging to the nurse,” indicated the police report.
The body of the deceased teacher was moved to Nyamira County Hospital Mortuary awaiting postmortem.
