Residents of Pipeline area in Eastlands, Nairobi, woke up to a bizarre incident when two bodies were found in a lodging today.

According to a police report by the Criminal Division at Kware Police Station, Embakasi, the incident was reported at 6:15pm on Monday by the proprietor of Chairman Lounge, Anthony Mathenge. 

In the report, a middle-aged man and a woman booked a room in the lodging on Monday, May 9 at 12:35am.

At around 2pm, the room attendant's suspicions rose after the duo failed to checkout.

Police say the attendant got no response after knocking on their door, prompting her to report the matter to her boss and subsequently to the police.

“The scene was visited by Kware  Police Station duty officer and CSIO Embakasi who found the door to the room locked from inside.  When the door was broken, a man and a woman were found dead on the bed holding each other by the shoulders and their lips held firmly to each other, police said. However, the male who had booked the room, was bleeding from the mouth and nose,” police said.

Two identity cards bearing their names were also found at the scene. The bodies were taken to City Mortuary awaiting postmortem.
