Caroline Mwatha, a human rights activist from Dandora who went missing last week, has been found dead.

The body of Ms. Mwatha was found at City Mortuary in Nairobi on Tuesday afternoon.

Sources have told Citizen Digital that the woman’s body was booked at the morgue by a private citizen at around 4am.

Ms. Mwatha is reported to have gone missing on Wednesday, February 6 with her disappearance being reported at Buru Buru Police Station on Friday, February 8.

According to her friends, she was last seen at her home in Dandora on Wednesday morning, but since then her phone has remained off with her whereabouts still unknown.

Caroline Mwatha was a founder member and case worker with Dandora Community Social Justice Centre, which has been documenting, lobbying and calling for police professionalism, public accountability and an end to extra judicial killings.

Amnesty International had raised the alarm over her disappearance, asking police to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.

“Amnesty International Kenya calls upon the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and National Police Service to thoroughly investigate Carol’s disappearance, establish her whereabouts and deliver to her friends and family,” said Irũngũ Houghton, Amnesty International’s Executive Director, in a statement to newsrooms on Sunday, February 10.
