Residents of Busende village in Matayos division, Busia District woke up to a rude shock when they stumbled upon the body of a local provincial administrator who had died under mysterious circumstances.
According to the wife of the deceased, Rosemary Atieno, her husband John Bosco Adiye who until his demise was the assistant chief of Muyafwa sub-location was picked by two motorbike operators at around 8pm and headed to unspecified destination.
“He was picked by two motorbike operators to unknown destination,” said Atieno, adding that around 2am she heard her husband shouting prompting her to wake up and open the door for him before returning to bed hoping that he would enter and close the door.
Another resident Pius Makokha a hotel operator at Nabisiongo trading centre on his part said he spotted the body of the deceased lying a few meters away from his hotel at around 5.30 am with a pool of blood at the door of the late assistant chief’s office.
“I was shocked when I spotted the body of the deceased lying prostrate on the ground with his jungle jacket nearby,” said the hotel owner, adding that he alerted the neighbors who woke up and witnessed the incident.
Speaking to West FM, the area councilor Lucas Wakuloba expressed concern over rising cases of insecurity in the area, saying it was high time the government transferred all the police officers who have overstayed in their stations for a long time.
“Some police officers in the district have stayed in their stations for three years and above, the said officers should therefore be transferred to other stations as some of them have been colluding with criminals at the expense of security”, said the civic leader.
He urged the security officers in the district to carry out thorough investigations to ensure those behind the death of the provincial administrator who are still at large are arrested and arraigned in court.
Busia OCPD Kenneth Kimani said the suspects are believed to be local residents, adding that no stone will be left unturned to bring the culprits to book so that legal action can be taken against them.
“We are following crucial leads that will enable the police to arrest those involved in the death of the assistant chief so that the law can take its rightful course,” said Kimani.
