A University of Nairobi’s son who was found dead, wrapped in blanket, in their house in Nairobi’s South B Estate died of stomach ulcers and obesity-related complications.
According to the government pathologist Peter Ndegwa, the autopsy which was conducted on Thursday evening revealed that Anna Khahugani’s son Emmanuel Inyama, 13, whose decomposing body was unearthed by the police could have been stressed and he was almost 100 kilograms.
He was very untidy his hair unshaven and very obese.
According to Mr Ndegwa, the boy’s ulcers could have been stress-induced.
The most interesting dramatic twist in this whole saga is the contradicting details as to why the boy might have died.
According to the boy’s mother Ms Khahugani, Emmanuel had slipped and injured himself. On the contrary, the pathologist has said there were no physical injuries on the body.
Emmanuel’s decomposing body was discovered by Steven Mwangi, the caretaker of the apartment where Ms Khahugani lives in Nairobi’s South B Estate.
Mr Mwangi had gone to collect rent from the lecturer and curiosity got the better of him and he peeped through the window when the door was not answered.
That is when he saw a body covered in a blanket on the chair.
There was a foul stench emanating from the house and flies were hovering all over the body. He immediately alerted the police.
CURLED UP IN THE KITCHEN
When the police broke in, they were astonished to find Ms Khahugani curled up in the kitchen.
She was weeping and informed them that Emmanuel had been injured but her church does not allow them to go to the hospital.
Police boss Philip Ndolo has confirmed that Ms Khahugani is undergoing a psychiatric examination.
He says they will summon a few lecturers from the University of Nairobi to help them with the investigations.
This bizarre event has sparked a conversation on hot topics that is mental health and religion.
