The body of the missing Dandora activist Caroline Mwatha has been found at the City Mortuary

She went missing on Wednesday last week and police have been working around the clock to trace her.

Police sources indicate the body was taken to the morgue on February 7, a day after she went missing.

This, however, contradicts earlier reports as the family said they had visited the mortuary but did not found the body.

Police said investigations have shown that Mwatha died at the clinic where she had sought unspecified medical services before her body was taken to the mortuary.

Police Spokesman Charles Owino told that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations is finalizing investigations before the two are charged over the death.

Over the weekend, Mwatha’s family and colleagues were engaged in a frantic search for her at all the main hospitals and the City Mortuary, but it proved futile.

According to sources, the body was taken to the morgue and booked under a different name, but it is not yet clear when.

The mother of two was last seen on February 6 walking alone to her house.

Three days after she went missing, someone used her phone to call her husband in Dubai, but he did not answer.

Police will now focus on establishing how Mwatha met her death.
