09 October 2013, 17:06

Nairobi - A morgue attendant has been arrested for stealing a gold watch from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s kin who was among those killed in during the terrorist Westgate Mall attack on September 21.

Confirming the arrest, Kilimani Division police boss Peter Katam said the female attendant working at City Mortuary is being interrogated, together with her colleagues for stealing from the dead, The Standard reports.

Katam went on to add that she will be charged, as it is criminal to steal from the dead.

President Uhuru lost his nephew Mbugua Mwangi and his fiancée Rosemary Waithaka who were among at least 70 people who died during the four day siege.
