Another Catholic Priest found dead

Body found inside vehicle

Residents watch the exhumation of the body of murdered priest

The body of a Catholic priest was found in his car that was parked along the Likoni-Lunga Lunga Highway in Mombasa County.

Police said the body of Father Ernest Mutua of Infant Jesus Catholic Church was found at Kona ya Polisi near Likoni Police station.

The Nation reported that police believe that Fr Mutua suffered a heart attack while driving towards the Likoni Channel.

Likoni Sub-County Police Commander Benjamin Rotich said the priest was alone in the vehicle.

The priest was a patient of high blood pressure and diabetes. We are informed that he parked by the side of the road after his sickness struck," Rotich said.

Catholic priest murdered

"We have, however, launched further investigations into the death,” he added.

Fr Mutua's body was discovered barely a day after another Catholic priest was found brutally murdered and buried in a shallow grave in Embu County.

The body of Father Michael Kyengo was discovered almost a week after he had been kidnapped from his Thatha Parish by gunmen.

Police said the kidnappers slit his throat and cut his body before burying him in a shallow grave on a riverbed.
