•Relatives of Isaac Wafula Bukhebi said they are not satisfied with police investigations so far.
•The former Bosto High School principal’s body was found in the River Nzoia in Bungoma County last Friday after he went missing from his home.
A family of the former Bosto High School principal has asked the acting Inspector General of police Noor Gabow to assist in solving the puzzle surrounding the death of their kin.
Speaking to the Star at their Cherangany home in Trans Nzoia county, relatives of Isaac Wafula Bukhebi said they are not satisfied with police investigations so far.
The former Bosto High School principal’s body was found in the River Nzoia in Bungoma County last Friday after he went missing from his home.
His family members are reading mischief into his death.
The deceased went missing on September 13th at around 8: 30 pm.
He served as Deputy Principal of Bwake Friends Boys High school before being promoted to Principal of Masaba Friends where he served shortly before being posted to Toro Mainek in Kiminini Constituency.
The deceased’s father Masinde Wanakacha and his wife Phelista Wanakacha read malice in the replacement of their son’s front teeth with artificial ones.
"My son had a lot of injuries yet someone is telling us that he killed himself. This is not the truth, whoever killed my son must tell me why”, he said.
Wanakacha rubbished the claim her son killed himself saying he wasn’t a confrontational person all days of his life.
"His wife is better placed to shed more light on how her husband left his house with all of his mobile phones having been switched off," she said amid tears.
She asked investigative agencies to unravel the reasons behind the death of her son whom she said was her pillar that had fallen at his prime age.
The deceased sister, Naomi Nekesa said it wasn’t true that the deceased killed himself and asked the police not to disregard crucial information from relatives and neighbours of the deceased.
"Neighbors have information and are willing to share but unfortunately the DCI have only considered information from my brother's wife. As a family we dispute claims that my brother killed himself by poison," she explained.
She also asked the DCI to treat the information on the bottle in the house which contained poison with keen interest instead of brushing aside the family’s concerns.
"The family managed to alert the police officers of the bottle containing remains of poison but none of those who gave the information have been asked to say what they know," she said.
"We want to know who gave out my brother's names at the mortuary," she added.
She urged the detectives to look into her brother's last communication he had on WhatsApp and SMS with those who were close to him.
The family said there was an urgent need for the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to move with speed to identify and bring to book those behind the heinous murder of their kin.
Trans Nzoia County police Commander Jecinta Wesonga told the Star in an interview Monday evening that an inquest file will be placed before the court to allow anyone including family members to present evidence that will lead to the arrest of anyone involved.
