Police in Kitui Central has launched an investigation into an incident where a man was found dead inside a guest house.

The middle-aged man was found dead inside a guest house in Kitui on Saturday, October 17.

Confirming the incident, Kitui Central Sub-County DCI Singi Nzioka said that the deceased had traveled from Western Kenya, in the company of two other men.

In a rather bizarre angle, the deceased’s phone records allude to an appointment with a witch doctor. The records claim that he was traveling to Mbitini area inn Kitui rural to seek a witchdoctor’s help.

According to Musyi FM, the deceased is suspected to have died from an overdose of a sexual enhancement pill.

Police have ordered an autopsy to ascertain the cause of death.

His body has been removed to the Kitui Level IV Hospital mortuary.
