  • Fresh details have emerged on the death of two cousins in Dandora, Nairobi County.

    Initial reports had indicated that the two, who died on March 29, were allegedly poisoned. However, a postmortem conducted by Chief Government Pathologist, Dr Johansen Oduor, at the City Mortuary indicates that the two died of suffocation.

    Oduor stated that the duo was smothered and the cause of death was suffocation. He, however, clarified that samples were taken for further toxicological examination.

    The postmortem report suggests the possibility that the cousins could have been killed using bare hands or a pillow.

    Initial reports had suggested that Rahab Gathoni and her cousin Abigael Gathoni had been given food laced with poison. Rahab’s husband was later arrested in connection with the deaths.

    According to detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Rahab’s husband was the prime suspect as he fled their home after the deaths of the two.

    The DCI stated that the suspect fled to Embu and was apprehended by police as he attempted to come back to Nairobi.

    “Immediately, a lean team of three swift men was dispatched towards Embu and as their hatchback descended the meandering highway towards the Sagana River bridge, the sleuths got wind that the suspect was on his way back to Nairobi in a bid to outfox them,” the DCI stated.

    “What followed was an immediate change of mission and a dramatic arrest along the highway as the suspect was ejected from a vehicle he had boarded, in a well-coordinated operation monitored at the Cyber and Digital forensics operations room.”

    Preliminary inquiries revealed that on the day of the alleged killing, the suspect reportedly called his brother insinuating that police would soon be looking for him.

    Police reported that he ended the call and neither did he return his brother’s calls. The brother alerted local police who went to the suspect’s home.
