Truth Finally Exposed on Whether Raila Rented Corpses

Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome is now being asked to explain more about his rented corpses remarks, which he made on Tuesday.

Koome had claimed that the opposition leadership hired corpses from mortuaries, in their bid to make the police look bad after the suspended demos.

But morticians are now asking him to provide evidence, demanding that he says where the bodies were rented from, while denying his claims.

They have denied hiring out bodies for publicity use as Koome is claiming, terming themselves professionals who can not be involved in such.

Through the Morticians and Allied Professionals Association of Kenya (MAPAKe), they have expressed displeasure with the remarks, especially coming from someone the level of the police boss.

Mortuary technicians are no longer rogue, careless, dirty, drunk, and reckless uneducated individuals. They operate within and observe the laws of Kenya in all our practice. The office of the Inspector General is such a respected office to even attempt to lower it to such unimaginable actions,” MAPAKe Secretary Felix Odhiambo said on Wednesday, according to Nation.

He added that there is no way any mortician could have done what Koome is claiming, noting that they work closely with the police and such could not have gone undetected by the law enforcement.

“We demand that the Inspector General of Police furnish the Kenya Health Professions Oversight Authority, Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board and the mortuary facilities, the particulars of those implicated for investigation and if found culpable, necessary disciplinary actions taken against them,” he added.

His remarks were echoed by MAPAKe Chair Elkana Mwinani, who also denied the claims, a day after Azimio boss Raila Odinga too came out to rubbish the claims. He denied hiring dead bodies.
