Families might have to wait 2 weeks to identify Garissa dead

14 April 2015, 14:17 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - 48 bodies are yet to be collected from the Chiromo mortuary in the aftermath of the Garissa terrorist attack.

It has also emerged that families might have to wait two weeks to finally get the bodies of their loved ones as it emerged that there might be need for DNA tests to identify bodies.

This follows the lack of identification of six bodies at the Chiromo mortuary by families seeking the bodies of their relatives who died in the attack.

This is due to the degenerating level of the fingerprints from the bodies of the victims.

" The bodies might take weeks to find out who they belong to if we are forced to use DNA testing. At the moment we are trying fingerprint identification but it has become difficult, National Disaster Operation Unit director Nathan Kigotho said.

" We understand that it is agonizing for the families but we have to ensure that we get the right bodies to the right persons, he added.

He said that of the 148 bodies from the Garissa attack, 100 have so far been collected.

42 have been identified but are yet to be collected by the families while the 6 remain unidentified.
