The post-mortem report, which was overseen by three family doctors and two others from the government, was released on Wednesday by government pathologist Dr. Johansen Oduor.

Dr. Oduor further stated that it still, however, remains unclear whether the death was a homicide or suicide, adding that he will visit the scene of crime to determine.
The government pathologist also stated that hand and swab injury samples have since been taken for soot as well as toxic analysis.
Kenei’s house has been marked as a scene of crime since Thursday last week when his body was discovered.
