Body of the missing Dandora activist Caroline Mwathe was on Tuesday found at the City Mortuary.

 Police reports indicated that her body was sent to the mortuary on February 7.

Mwathe had been reported missing on February 6 after she had left her home to run some errands in the CBD.

The deceased was both an activist and founder member of the Dandora Community Justice Centre.

Wilfred Olal, who is the Centre coordinator, had revealed that the organisation had faced threats from police due to the work that they do.

"The killer police have been very hostile and have been issuing threats to some of us, including Caroline," stated Olal.

The mother of two had been leading a campaign against extra-judicial killings witnessed in the estate.

Sonko offers reward

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko had on Monday offered a Sh300,000 reward to any member of the public who could locate Mwathe.

Sonko had further requested the masses to forward necessary information to the DCI.

The proposal of the governor came after Amnesty International executive director Irungu Houghton had called on the police to find her and get her back home.
