A body of a woman was on Sunday found stuffed in a sack and damped in a riverbank in Njoro, Nakuru County, northwest of Nairobi.
Two children fetching firewood along the river discovered the woman's lifeless body.
According to police, the body's hands and legs were tied and sliced into pieces and thrown into a sack.
Her mouth had been gagged with a cloth, most likely to keep her from shouting for help.
Police concluded that the woman was murdered somewhere, and her body was deposited at the scene.
The scene was cleared, and the body was transported to the Egerton University mortuary for identification and postmortem.
Police have yet to make an arrest or determine the reason for the murder.
This comes after a decomposing body of a university student was found in his boyfriend's house in Nakuru.
The body of Phyllis Jepleting, a first-year student at Karatina University, was found by neighbours.
The deceased's boyfriend, Ezra Kipkemei, was arrested and arraigned in court, where he was detained for 14 days, pending investigations.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
