According to the police a black backpack, with personal documents, was recovered next to the body of the deceased.

Police also believe the deceased may have been killed elsewhere and his body  dumped in the ditch where it was found.

“The body of the deceased was taken to the mortuary and currently investigations are ongoing to ascertain what might have transpired,” said Mr Adamson Bungei, the Nairobi County police boss.

His death comes just a year after another journalist identified as Gatonye Gathura was found dead and his body taken to Naivasha Sub-County Referral Hospital mortuary.

Mr Gathura was a veteran Health and Science journalist who also worked for the Standard Media Group.

Mr Gatonye went missing on October 21, 2021 and his body was booked at the morgue on October 26, 2021 as “an unknown male adult.”

Police then said that his body had been found dumped on the Naivasha-Mai Mahiu Road on the same day he went missing.

It took the intervention of the Registrar of Persons to use finger prints to establish the identity of the late.

Police believe Mr Gathura may have been strangled as a copper wire was found tied around his neck.
