Prostitute's body found in Naivasha home

17 February 2016, 20:50

Nairobi - The decomposing body of a woman said to be a commercial sex worker was found in her house in Naivasha, on Wednesday morning.

According to The Star, Neighbours and friends said they became concerned after not seeing the middle-aged woman for two weeks.

The stench from her house in Kayole estate prompted them to call police and the area chief on Wednesday morning, Joshua Muya, a witness said.

"The woman was last seen two weeks ago and her house had been closed all along. Neighbors were attracted to the smell where the body was found lying on the bed,” Muya said.

Police with the help of the caretaker broke into the house and took the body to Naivasha subcounty Referral Hospital mortuary.

"The body is in very bad condition making it hard to determine if there was foul play in the death. Only a postmortem will determine this," a police source said. 

Incidences of prostitutes dying in Kenya are not new.

Citizen News reported bodies of prostitutes found mutilated in Nakuru County.

Panic struck parts of Nakuru County after four prostitutes were reportedly killed and skinned by an alleged serial killer.

Reports indicated that the fourth victim had her eyes gouged out and private parts mutilated.

The said serial killer was later arrested and charged with murder.
