Sergent Kipyegon died from a gun short wound, the results from the post-mortem done on the sergeant’s body has revealed. According to the government chief pathologist Dr.Johansen Odour, Kenei died after a gunshot penetrated through his chin and exited through the head.
The post-mortem was conducted by Dr. Johansen Odour in the presence of three family members of the deceased.
According to the report, Kenei’s body had started to decompose by the time it was found meaning he died 1-2 days before he was found.
According to the findings by Dr. Odour , it is still not clear whether the death was a homicide or suicide. He has planned to visit the crime scene to determine.
Kenei was found dead in his house but what puzzled investigators is that there was no pool of blood on the floor.
Kenei was a key witness in the Echesa 39 billion gun saga. His disappearance moments before he was to record a statement complicated the matter more. Kenei would later be found dead in his house. It was earlier thought he might have committed suicide but findings from detectives have proved otherwise. It is still not yet clear the motive behind his killers but police are following up with important leads to determine his killers and their motive.
According an exposee by the Nation Media, Sergeant Kenei who was a close confident to the DP had fallen out with some unnamed DP aids. It was so bad that he had asked for a transfer from the Harambee House Annex building, but a CS close to DP William Ruto had convinced him to stay with a promise he would be appointed to a good position should the Deputy President win election in 2022 as president.
The family of Sergeant Kenei came out clearly insisting their son was murdered as there was no compelling reason that would have led the deceased to take his own life.
The family have hence called for a separate postmortem to be carried out to unravel the mystery surrounding his death.
Mr. Chesang ,Kenei’s father spoke to the Deputy President and asked him to help do thorough investigations in determining the cause of his son’s death
