DCI detectives are investigating an incident where a government official was found dead at her house in Kirinyaga county.
Kirinyaga East assistant county commissioner Jacqueline Waliaula’s body was retrieved from her house on Wednesday morning.
“Preliminary report has it that she vomited a bit yesternight and said she would go to the hospital today,” the detective who requested for anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter said.
The source said the deceased’s body was discovered in her bedroom by a nanny who later informed one of their neighbours, a police officer.
“Her nanny woke up to her duties of preparing breakfast but suspected something was wrong as she hadn’t left her room. She decided to go to her room only to find her lying on the bed on her belly. She called their neighbour, a police officer, and it was at this point that she was confirmed dead,” he said.
The deceased was heavily pregnant at the time of her death.
The cause of her death is yet to be established.
