By Antynet Ford

Police in Dandora have launched investigations after they found the decomposing body of a man in his house.

The police were informed by the man’s neighbors after a bad odor started emanating from the house where he lived alone.

The police broke the door of the house and found his body lying on the floor.

The cause of the death was not immediately established and it is not clear when he died.

The neighbors informed the police they didn’t know the tenant as he was new in the compound.

The body was taken to the mortuary pending identification and autopsy.

This comes as the police also arrested two suspects linked to a separate murder in Dandora on March 7, 2024.

The two identified as Malcom Omondi Odhiambo of MJ Investments and Justus Muema Mutungi of Neema Shop in Dandora Phase IV, are suspected of buying phones stolen from robbery victims in Eastlands and were arrested after they were interrogated by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers based at Starehe.

“This is after thorough investigations led sleuths to Malcom’s business shop where the victim’s mobile phone earlier robbed by the perpetrators of the evil act was taken, and later sold out by him to Justus who was arrested in its possession.” the DCI said.

Police had already arrested two suspects accused of committing the actual crime of killing the young man on Thursday, March 7.

Investigations revealed that the two suspects were walking in the same direction with the deceased and after an argument, one of them pulled out a knife and stabbed the other on the left side of the chest.

Nehemiah Odhiambo alias Oti and Emmanuel Otieno alias Emasu fled the scene but the victim, who sustained a deep cut on the left side of his chest, succumbed to his injuries while receiving treatment at Baba Dogo Health Facility.

The two suspects who fled the scene after stabbing the victim were arrested from their hideouts at Baraka Estate and Kwa Bhajia areas in Dandora and are linked to a spate of criminal activities reported in Baba Dogo, Huruma and Lucky Summer.
