With the ongoing pandemic, many Kenyans have come to a point where they are not able to pay their rent. Most businesses had to shut down which means most people lost their source of living.
this was the situation in an estate in Nairobi where a landlady identified as Nancy Wanja Njuguna evicted her tenant after he failed to pay a few month’s rent.
However, what she did not know was that the tenant, David Migwi Kariuki, had left behind a dead body in the rental. Wanja got herself in trouble after allegedly dumping the body at the Tumaini Primary school in Umoja.
It is alleged that Wanja tasked two casual labourers Kennedy Otieno Omar and Nicholas Kimanthito remove the body from the scene of the incident.
Omar is said to have wrapped the dismembered body with wedding decor materials before Kimanthi dumped the body at the school.
Kimathi has however tried to distance himself from the situation by saying that he had no idea what he was carrying as he had just been asked to dump the heaps at the dumpsite. He said that he noticed a smell from the heap but he assumed that it was normal trash that had probably come into contact with water hence the dumpy smell.
“I did not remove anything from the house as, by the time I was called, Omar and another man had already removed everything to a corridor outside the house.
“There was a smell but I assumed the materials were smelling because of being water-drenched and I did not bother to check because they were heaps,”
The landlady and the two labourers are being held by the police but the tenant managed to run untraced.
