“The results show the five men were strangled to death, they still had ropes around their necks,” the Haki Africa director stated.
“Others had paper bag used to suffocate them. The other one died from an acid attack,” he added.
The postmortem was conducted at Nairobi City Mortuary after the bodies were transferred from Makindu Hospital.
The bodies were discovered decomposing at Kanga area in Tsavo Forest following a search by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) rangers.
Rangers Mark Lesidio and James Simiti revealed while they were patrolling Tsavo West National Park, they smelt a stench emanating from a section of the forest and so they decided to probe further.
