A Priest, Father Evans Juma Oduor, was beaten and robbed in Western Kenya two nights ago. Some police found him lying next to a sugarcane plantation, disoriented and hurt. They rushed him to a local hospital and admitted him even though they did not know his name. He died several hours later due to his injuries. They were also able to locate his car several miles away, which had been burned. They are still trying to find his attackers, but do not have many leads.
2017-10-25 Kenya (StandardDigital) Father Evans Juma Oduor was found unconscious by good Samaritans near a sugarcane plantation at Chiga Market Centre in Muhoroni Sub-county, about 30 kilometres from his Nyabondo Convent Residence. His burnt car was found some five kilometres away.
Police took him to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital where he died hours later. “Our officers found the man unconscious and he could not speak. He could not be identified so he was booked at the hospital as an unknown patient. He had injuries on the face and hands, and we are still following up on leads that could help us investigate the issue,” said County Police Commander John Kamau.
“The patient got to our facility at 11pm, and we did a CT Scan and other tests, and we discovered that he had massive injuries to the head. He died at about 1am,” said Dr Juliana Otieno, the Superintendent at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital. Members of the Catholic Church visited the hospital mortuary on Monday wondering the motive behind the murder.
