• Police suspect this is a revenge plot by someone who was not happy with the victim's affairs
Police are investigating an incident in which a man was found murdered and his private parts chopped off in his house in the Kiamumbi area, Nairobi.
The victim was identified as Stephen Ngurari and police say they also recovered a bloody knife, and blunt object and that the scene was disturbed indicating there was a struggle there.
“It was a horrible scene to see because he must have died painfully,” said one officer who attended the scene.
Neighbours said the killers arrived aboard a motorcycle and left after their mission was accomplished.
Elsewhere two bodies were found in the Kilimani area in a trench and bus stop in Kasarani. The incidents are being investigated by authorities.
Five more suicide incidents were reported to police on Wednesday in the country in an alarming trend.
This is an addition to the seven that were reported on Tuesday alone increasing the cases to 12 in two days.
The incidents happened in Gesonso and Ramasha in Kisii, Mathira in Nyeri, Ndanai, Sotik in Bomet and Kenol in Muranga.
The victims were all male and died through hanging and poison. Police say they are investigating the cases.
Cases of suicide have been on the rise this year and authorities blame the trend on mental distress.
There were 174 cases of suicide reported in 2020 as compared to 196 in 2019, 302 in 2018, 421 in 2017 and 302 in 2016.
The majority of the victims were male, police reports say.
