A Kenyan human rights activist who went missing a week ago has been found dead at a city mortuary after a botched abortion, police said Tuesday.
However investigations showed Mwatha, who is married, had been communicating with a boyfriend who sent her money for an abortion, a police statement said.
"Investigators believe Caroline died in the clinic" and her body was taken to the mortuary under an alias last Thursday.
A police source earlier told AFP that the owner of the clinic, and a doctor, had come forward and admitted that "they took the body to the mortuary and booked her under a different name and indicated she died of diarrhoea". Kinoti said five people have been arrested, including the clinic owner, a doctor, the "boyfriend" and an Uber driver.
