Mutilated body of Pastor Nicholas Kibagendi who went missing from his home in Borabu, Nyamira County about a month ago has been discovered next to his house.
A herder found a skull dumped in an open field on Thursday at around 8am and immediately raised the alarm, attracting hundreds of locals.
Police mobilised villagers to search for the torso.
After a few hours of searching, the decomposing body was found deep in a thicket about 150 metres from where the skull was found.
The remains had been dumped on a farm belonging to the late Education minister and Kitutu West MP George Sagini.
Farm manager Musa Ombati said they were drawn to the scene by wailing villagers and had not known that the body had been dumped there.
The family and neighbours who arrived at the scene, confirmed that the body was that of the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) pastor.
The cleric who is attached to Nyamira SDA Conference headquarters, left his home at Riensune village near Nyansiongo town, on Thursday 20th April, at around 8.am after receiving a call.
According to his wife, Jennifer the husband received a call and walked out of his house while on phone and headed towards Keroka town on foot.
The 54-year old father of five left never to return leaving his family worried and according to phone records, his phone’s signal was last used on the fateful day at Nyansiongo Market, a kilometer away from his home.
“He left as we were preparing for breakfast but did not return. I was worried and I called his two lines around noon but they were both off,” Jennifer told the Standard last month. The motive of the killing is yet to be established.
