A postmortem done on Thursday, August 5 on bodies of two brothers who were found at Embu level 5 hospital mortuary has been released.

The postmortem that was done on the body of Benson Njiru and Emanuel Mutura revealed the two died in different ways.

While addressing the media after the postmortem, family advocate Muchangi Gichugu said Njiru’s body had multiple injuries on the head, broken limbs indicating that he might have jumped from a moving vehicle.

However the advocate said Njiru’s head had  multiple injuries and may also have been as a result of being hit by a blunt object.

Mutura’s body on the other hand had no injuries except on the head an indication that he was hit with a hard blunt object nullifying the notion that the boy jumped from a moving vehicle.

Gichugu said the family will pursue the criminal justice system to ensure justice is accorded to the family of the deceased.

The autopsy was contacted by three pathologists namely Dr Martha Mwangi,Dr Kamau Wangari and Dr. Peter Muturi. The Independent  Policing Oversight Authority[IPOA] and Independent Medical Unit [IMLU] who are also investigating the mysterious death of two brothers was also represented during the postmortem process.

They were government, non-governmental organizations, and family pathologists. The postmortem report on the death of the two brothers has rubbished recent reports by police that the two jumped from a fast moving police vehicle to evade arrest and died.

Felix Njagi, the uncle to the deceased, said that what they are pursuing is justice for the family.

He said the bodies have been transferred to Tenri hospital for preservation.
