The late Dandora based human Rights activist Caroline Mwatha was killed in cold blood. This is according to activist Boniface Mwangi.
According to Boniface, the fact that the police went silent when Caroline’s disappearance was reported only to later release a comprehensive report speaks a lot.
“When Caroline’s disappearance was reported, the police went silent only to later release a “very comprehensive” statement about the events leading to her death.” he said.
“This can only imply the police were on her trail, they knew her body was lying on a cold slab in a morgue, but they waited for the body to be discovered in order for them to release that statement,” he added.
“I don’t know the exact circumstances of Caroline’s death, but I am certain she was murdered,” he concluded.
Caroline went missing on February 6. After a futile search by her family and colleagues, the body was found at the City Mortuary on February 12.
On Thursday, her family and human rights activists paid their last respects at Freedom Corner in Nairobi.
Rev Timothy Njoya of the PCEA presided over the memorial Mass.
Caroline’s husband Joshua Ochieng’, her parents, former Chief Justice Dr Willy Mutunga, Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris, former Cabinet Minister Martha Karua attended the Mass. Activists Boniface Mwangi and Okiya Omtatah were also present.
