Former Internal Security Minister Julius Sunkuli and his brother Charles Sunkuli, who is the Environment Principal Secretary are seeking justice for the ex-Minister’s son, the late Augustine Salaton.
Mr Salaton was found dead by police in a lorry parking lot in Kilgoris, Narok County. The body was then taken to Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary.
Trans Mara West police boss David Wambua said the mortuary in Kilgoris has no freezers, so they moved the body to Kisii hospital.
The deceased is reported to have left home on the 7 May, 2018 for Nairobi and did not come back on 8 May which prompted his grandmother to be worried when she did not hear from him.
“Every morning, he used to visit his grandmother who lives nearby. But the grandmother got concerned when he failed to show up on May 8,” Sunkuli told a local daily.
The former minister’s wife, Lucy, then reported the matter at Kilgoris police station.
The family reportedly found the body two weeks later, on 18 May, and they say that the body shows evidence of struggle before his death. Besides injuries, the body appeared to have been burnt with acid.
Augustine was the first son of Julius Sunkuli from his first marriage with Ms Janet Morentat.
The family have asked the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to investigate the death.
