Machozi tupu! Photos of Caroline Mwatha’s husband mourning emerge

A postmortem exercise is expected to be conducted on the body of human rights activist Caroline Mwatha to establish the cause of her death.

The exercise will be conducted today at the City Mortuary where the body has been lying for more than a week. Police say the woman died as sought abortion services at a clinic in Dandora, Nairobi.

The owners of the clinic then moved the body to the mortuary and booked it under a different name. It was discovered after the owners of the clinic had been arrested and confessed.

Human rights groups and the family of activist Caroline Mwatha yesterday dismissed police reports that she died after a botched abortion.

Caroline’s father Stanslaus Mbai said the police’s narrative was “hollow, nondescript and not true”. He spoke at City Mortuary, where they camped to wait for a postmortem.

Caroline worked for Dandora Community Justice Centre, a human rights lobby that fights against extrajudicial killings, police brutality and enforced disappearances. It has been documenting police executions in the estate and its environs.

“Saying that Caro died from an abortion operation gone wrong is hogwash. We’ve been with her and we know that she was not pregnant,” Mbai said.

Husband Joshua Ochieng’ expressed dismay at the allegations, saying the abortion theory could not hold.

“If she was supposedly aborting for fear of ruining her marriage, why would she wait to do that after five months?” he asked. “Why didn’t she do it in the first month or two or even less?”

Mbai questioned the credibility of the records at the morgue. He said his family and friends had visited the morgue and conducted a thorough search from February 8 but did not find the body. They also visited other mortuaries.

“We were here on February 8 and 9 but did not find her. We asked about Caroline. If there was a body by the name Caroline, we could have been shown so we identify her,” the father of four said.

The mortuary attendants had explained on Tuesday that a woman only identified as Grace took the activist’s body to the facility on February 7. Asked on Tuesday to disclose the attendant who was in charge, they said the staff had taken leave.

Records show the body was booked as Carolyne Mbeki. It is not clear how they arrived at the name.

Human rights activists, led by Haki Africa executive director Hussein Khalid and Dandora Community Justice Centre coordinator Wilfred Olal, took issue with “the police providing information to the media regarding the discovery of the body, even before informing the family.”

“How did they know that the name assigned to the discovered body was wrong? How is that they found it right to tip the media of the discovery but not informing the family who had reported a missing person?” Olal asked.

Joshua Ochieng’Activist Florence Kanyua asked why the postmortem planned for yesterday was pushed to next Monday, with an excuse that chief government pathologist Johansen Oduor was in Naivasha.

“It is them who told us that the postmortem would be carried out today? Why was it postponed to Monday? Is Oduor the only pathologist who can do it?” she asked.

The Star learnt that Oduor was in Arusha. It later emerged that the postmortem is to be done today.

Khalid said, “They told us when I was here with Houghton Irungu [Transparency International director] that they would do the autopsy at 9am. We have even come with our independent pathologist to work together with theirs. What is it now?”

Lakini kwanini apelekwe katika chumba cha maiti siku baada ya kupotea na kisha kuenda kutafutwa na familia na kuambiwa hakuna mtu aliye na jina kama hilo maeneo hayo?

Kitambo Jumanne familia iliweza kupigiwa simu na kuambiwa kuwa mwili wa Mwatha umepatikana katika mto na kuenda kuuona.

Polisi aliyetaka kutojulikana alisema kuwa walipigia familia ya Mwatha tena na kuwajulisha kuwa mabaki ya mwili si ya msichana wao Caroline.

Maafisa walisema kuwa waliweza kujibu baada ya wanachama wa taifa kupiga simu katika kituo cha polisi na kusema kuwa wameona mwili kando ya barabara.

“Hata hivyo hatuchukui nafasi yeyote, tuta zidisha au kupanua kutafuta ukweli katika kila mahali risasi itakuwa tutumie,” Alisema polisi.

Mwatha alikuwa afisa mkuu katika kundi la Dandora Community Social justice Center. Alikuwa anahusika na kesi ya mauaji yasio na hatia na kisha kesi ya mauaji ya damu baridi ya watu sita waliopigwa risasi na polisi Oktoba mwaka jana.

Katika kauli ya mkurugenzi mtendaji wa Amnesty International aliweza kuwaomba maagendi wa uchunguzi kumtafuta Caroline na kuwajulisha mahali alipo.

Si kesi ya kwanza ya mwananchi kupotea na kurudi kwake akiwa maiti, ni watoto wamebaki yatima na mume wa Caroline kubaki mjane wasijue kisicho sababisha kifo cha mwanaharakati huyo.
