Nakuru - A Nakuru County Assembly clerk in charge of transport has been found dead in her house under mysterious circumstances.
Judith Nduku Maingi, 38, was found lying dead on a bed in her rental house by area local administrator on Friday after she was reported missing for a week.
Confirming the incident, the Free-Area Chief Stephen Macharia said he received information from county employees informing him that Ms Maingi was missing at work and she could not be traced.
“I received information from county employees who said Maingi was not reporting to work and that she could not be traced over phone and decided to locate her house and try finding her,” said Macharia.
According to Macharia on visiting the deceased rental house they found the place clogged by a swarm of flies at the doors and windows of the house.
The chief said later locals and well-wishers combined efforts and broke into the house where they retrieved her body lying on the bed adding that the deceased might have died a week ago because her body was mutilated.
“The deceased might have died a week ago because her body smelled foul and it was mutilated,” he said.
Leah Serem, a Member of County Assembly noted that while in Thika, the deceased complained of a headache but took painkillers before traveling back with other employees last Thursday.
She however said from August 18, she never reported at work, her colleagues tried to reach her over phone but the phone went unanswered.
The body has been taken to Nakuru Mortuary morgue for postmortem while police conduct investigations on the cause of death.
