Residents of Kongoini village in Kiharu,Murang’a county are shocked after finding unidentified man’s body dumped by the roadside.
According to Mukuyu area chief Adams Kariuki,the unidentified body was unclothed and was on one shoe.
Mukuyu said the body seemed to be dumped in the area from elsewhere since the man was not recognizable.
“I was called early Sunday morning some minutes to 7am, where I was told about a body that had been discovered dumped by the road,” Chief Kariuki said.
“He was naked save for his underwear and one shoe, we suspect he was dumped from elsewhere as he is not recognisable as a person from this region.”
Simon Njoroge a resident of Kongoini was the first to see the body while he was on his way to the shopping center around 6:20am and reported to the area chief.
“I saw what looked like a body in a ditch on the side of the road, I then saw another man who was walking nearby and he confirmed that it was a body,” Njoroge said.
Residents who live along the roadside where the body was dumped said that they heard a vehicle roaming around on the wee hours of Sunday morning.
