Puzzle after pastor found dead in house

The mysterious death of a pastor has left Ongata Rongai residents puzzled.

They only came to know of his death after police broke into his apartment and  found his decomposing body.

The residents had notified the police of a foul smell and flies from the locked house.

Police and residents who broke into the house found the man’s body in his bedroom with his phone still charging.


According to a relative of the dead man, they started looking for him after he failed to attend a meeting that was to take place outside Nairobi.

He said he attempted to get him on phone but the call went unanswered, prompting him to start the search.

The relative added that the man who has been living in the apartment for some months, was epileptic and under medication.

Rongai OCPD Silas Ringera said they were treating the incident as ordinary death as they were awaiting postmortem results.

It is not clear how long the body had been lying in the house before its discovery but police said the pastor’s last communication on phone was on Friday last week.
