The remains of a missing Mombasa man Mwinyi Mwinyi Mzungu have been found at the Nairobi’s city mortuary.

Human rights lobby Haki Africa has been pursuing the incident for almost two months now after four men who introduced themselves as police officers arrested Mwinyi, 41, at his Utange home in Kisauni Sub-County on December, 20, 2021.

The incident occurred at around 7 pm on the material day when the armed men bundled Mwinyi in a waiting black Subaru vehicle and sped off.

Haki Africa Executive Director Hussein Khalid said on Friday, the family positively identified Mwinyi’s body at the Nairobi’s city morgue.

“Already plans are underway to burry him at his Utange home after the authorities releases his body to his family,” said Mr. Hussein

Mwinyi, was Masuo Bakari’s close friend who his body was also found at the City mortuary barely a month ago.

Masuo together with Fahmi Bakari and Hussein Mohammed were abducted around Mazeras area along the Mombasa-Nairobi highway.

Later, Masuo and Fahmi were found dead at City and Thika level four hospital morgue respectively on different days.

Their bodies were later transported to Kisauni Sub-County, in Mombasa for burial.

“However, todate, Mohammed’s whereabouts remain a puzzle, together with the family, we have criss-crossed the entire country, various hospitals, morgues and police stations but in vain,” said Mr Khalid.

Khalid said the enforced disappearances and killings are on the rise specifically in the Coast region without any efforts by the government to contain the scaring situation.

“These incidents are on the rise and it is evident Coastal people are living in fear following the unresolved abductions and extrajudicial killings,” disclosed Khalid.
