Police probe death of elderly man in Kawangware

Police in Nairobi are investigating an incident where a man died while on his bed in Kawangware area.

In a report seen by Nairobi News, Ms Jerusa Amoit Wanyonyi reached out to the Muthangari Police Station where she reported that her husband identified as Mr Godwin Wanyonyi had passed on at the Kawangware Area Two bus terminus.

“Police officers rushed to the scene and found the body of Mr Godwin Wanyonyi, 67 lying on his bed while facing upwards in a one roomed rented house,” the report read in part.

Officers said that family and neighbors informed them that the deceased only complained of chest pain and at around 4pm as they were preparing to take him to hospital he died.

According to the report the body had a slight injury on both hands and they were wrapped using an Elastoplast.

The scene was documented by the Crime Scene Investigators (CSI) personnel and the body was then moved to the Chiromo Morgue located in Nairobi County awaiting to undergo postmortem test.

The case is now being handled by sleuths attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Dagoretti North Sub-County.

The incident took place barely ten days after another man died after he had just finalized divorcing his wife.

In a report seen by this reporter, officers at Kabete Police Station in Dagoretti Sub-County, Nairobi, launched investigations after receiving a report of the sudden death of Mr Eric Thairu Ragui, 61.

“It was reported by Mr James Wainaina at about 6:40pm that he found his brother lying unresponsive in his iron sheet house. Police officers rushed to the scene at Ruthimitu, about 5 kilometres south of the station, and found the access to the house locked from inside, so they broke the gate to the compound and the door to the house,” the report reads in part.

It was then that the officers found the lifeless body lying on the floor in a prone position – face down with the head in a neutral position without excessive flexion, extension or rotation – next to his bed.
