My daughter was murdered – Caroline Mwatha’s father
The father to the late human rights activist, Caroline Mwatha, has rubbished reports from the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) indicating that his daughter died out of a botched abortion. According to him, his daughter was murder due to the nature of her work.
While speaking at the City Mortuary, her father stated:
“Honestly before God, Caroline was killed because of believing in truth, her death is not as a result of being sick or accidental, she was killed because of her work.”
The father further alleged that his daughter was already fearing for her life prior to that.
He tore apart the manner his daughter was booked at City Mortuary. In his words he said:
“Instead of being booked as Caroline Mwatha they booked her as a Caroline Mbeki, she was brought here by a woman, we understand she was first taken to Kenyatta by a man claiming to be her husband, Caro’s husband was in Dubai at the time.”
He claims to have been contacted by a stranger who wanted to inquire of the progress of the search for Caroline.
“I had gone to church to pray for Caroline and left my phone in the car, when I came back I found a message telling me to go for my daughter. I called the number two times but whoever received it was not saying anything, later someone called me asking how far we had gone with Caroline’s Case,” he said.
Mwatha’s colleague are also of the opinion that the police know the real truth behind the murder of the activist. The colleagues also insinuated that the book that Caroline was booked on at the morgue is not the same they found when they were going round searching for her.
