The body of the missing Somali-American businessman Bashir Mohamed Mohamud has been found, says his family.

His remains were traced to Kerugoya level 5 Hospital in Kirinyaga County on Saturday.

Family Lawyer Charles Madowo, in a statement, confirmed the sad news to the press.

"It is with heavy hearts that the family of Bashir Mohamed Mohamud informs you that the body of Bashir was found earlier today at Kerugoya level 5 hospital," the statement said in part.

The press statement further requested privacy on behalf of the family even as burial arrangements are underway.

Bashir's family is now calling on authorities to swing into action and arrest those behind the murder.

"As the family processes this tragic news and plan for his burial, they request that they be afforded privacy," the press statement appealed.

'Even as Bashir rests, the family shall not rest until justice has been served and those responsible for his death brought to book," it added.

Reports indicate that physical examination on Bashir's body suggests torture before death.

Panga cuts and two Bullets in the head were reportedly observed.
