Residents of Mautuma Sub County are in shock following the mysterious death of a
41 year old carpenter.
Mautuma location chief, Mrs Pamela Davava confirmed the incident when she spoke to members of press on Friday.
The body of the deceased Mr. Arthur Khayumbi was found inside his rented house at
Tairi Mbili trading centre on Thursday evening, reported Mrs. Davava.
According to Mrs. Davava, it was the deceased workmates at their Pan Paper workshop who broke into the house before they found the lifeless
body on the bed.
His colleagues were disturbed when he failed to show up on Thursday morning for work. Later in the day they embarked on manual search for him after attempts to trace him through his mobile phone bore no fruit, as it went unanswered, said Mrs. Davava.
According to his employer, Mr. Timothy Ishuga, the deceased left his
place of work on Wednesday evening in good health.
Though preliminary investigations indicate he must have succumbed to a yet- to- be established disease on account of tablets found next to his body, noted Ishuga, disclosing the deceased was a resident of Kipsangui village in the neighbouring Likuyani ward.
Security organs have launched investigations into the death.
The local administrator appealed to residents to remain calm pending the outcome of the investigations.
The body was removed to the Kimbilio Funeral Home (Chebaiywa) in Uasin Gishu County.
