Thika: Man found dead inside parked matatu


A middle-aged man was on Wednesday morning found dead inside a parked matatu in Makongeni Estate, Thika.

According to a security guard in the area, the deceased reported to his work place at 11pm and started complaining of severe headache shortly thereafter.

He then requested to have a nap in one of the matatus that had been parked in a nearby garage, only to later be found dead with blood oozing out of his nose and mouth.

Two other security guards who spoke to Citizen Digital said the man is known to be suffering from epilepsy which they highly suspect might have contributed to his death.

Confirming the incident, Thika OCPD Paul Kiriki said further investigations are underway, adding that preliminary investigations, however, indicate the man could have died of epilepsy.

The deceased was a cook at a local church in Makongeni Estate.
