Police in Webuye East have detained a self-proclaimed clergyman after a horrifying discovery of human body parts in his car at a carwash located at Amazing Petrol Station in Masikhu market.

The suspect, identified as Levis Simiyu, a pastor at a local ministry in Ndivisi Ward, brought his Toyota Premio for a body wash at the bustling carwash earlier today.

The grisly find was made by a carwash attendant performing final touches on the vehicle’s boot, where he spotted a protruding human leg, partly burnt and resting atop other body parts.
