A 70-year-old small scale business lady was Saturday morning found murdered and her body dumped near Mbaga mixed secondary school in Siaya.
Confirming the incident, the assistant chief for Komolo sub location in Alego / Usonga, Mr. Felix Orwenyo said that the deceased’s body was found lying in a pool of blood.
Orwenyo said the deceased, identified as Martha Muhula, was a small scale business woman at the nearby Mbaga trading centre.
The administrator said that Muhula is said to have spent the day at her business and left at around 7.00 pm to return home but never reached.
“According to the family, she failed to return home Friday evening only for her body to be found beside the school fence the following morning,” said the assistant chief.
Orwenyo said that people in the neighbourhood of the school said they heard a loud scream from the direction of the school, but they never bothered to check as the curfew time was already on and that to them, it was a bit too early.
He however said that the deceased had some time back reported that one of her neighbours had threatened to kill her.
Police removed the body to the Siaya county referral hospital for post-mortem as investigations were launched to nab the suspected killers.
