Shocked residents gather at Kitu Munyoki’s home

Residents of Ndaluni village in Kitui County are still reeling from the shocking discovery of a man who lived with the corpses of his wife and child for two years.

Kitu Munyoki Mwanzia claimed that his late wife left strict instructions not to be buried. He said his wife died in early 2014 while the child passed away in 2013.

“I was following instructions from my late wife that I should not bury her but wait for six years as she would resurrect. If it was you who was given such instructions, what would you have done?” Munyoki who spoke from the police station posed.

The shocking discovery was brought to light on Friday after Munyoki’s mother-in-law, Pauline Ndunge, travelled from Machakos County to see her daughter with whom she had last communicated in 2013.

“Whenever I called him and demanded to speak to her, he would claim she had refused to talk to me. He would then disconnect the call,” Ndunge said.

Assistant chief Grace Muli said Munyoki  had led a mysterious life and did not allow people to visit his home.

The bodies were taken to Migwani hospital. Doctors were surprised at how Munyoki managed to preserve the bodies well for three years.
