KPA employee found dead in his house sparking fear

By Weldon Kipkemoi | May 2nd 2020

Detectives in Mombasa are investigating the mysterious death of a Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) employee whose body was found in his house on Friday morning.

Josphat Muliro, 56, was found dead by police inside his house in Santana area in Changamwe after members of public notified authorities.

There was tension in the area after the news spread through the port which has been affected by widespread contamination of the Covid-19.

Changamwe Police boss Ali Ndiema told The Standard that the deceased was staying alone in his house after he separated from his wife two years ago in what is suspected to be a family dispute.

"We got information that the deceased had long standing disputes with his wife after they separated. Our homicide team are probing the matter to ascertain his death," he told the standard on phone.

He said the police and health officials in hazmat suits arrived at the scene where the body was then put in a body bag and taken to the Coast General hospital mortuary for a postmortem examination. 

The government through the ministry of health last week launched a mass testing at the port targeting over 7000 employees after two died of the deadly virus.

Several others who came into contact with victims have been placed in quarantine.

About 29 port employees have tasted positive of Covid-19 alone at the port.

Mombasa has recorded high number of patients with coronavirus.
