Postmortem to show whether Shakahola victims have missing body organs
According to Kindiki, the week-long postmortem exercise will be seeking to establish the circumstances under which the victims died.
Speaking to the press on Monday, Kindiki said that the Pathologist Dr. Johansen Oduor-led team will also be targeting to prove the theory of organ harvesting which has been linked to the Kilifi cult, allegedly led by pastor Paul Mackenzie Nthenge, founder of the Good News International Church.
"If any of our people have their organs missing we will tell the world, there is nothing we are hiding and we will have to find out why those organs are missing, who took them and to where," said Kindiki.
"This is a long process of accountability."
The postmortem will be conducted at the Malindi Sub-county mortuary.
Kindiki further noted that the government is seeking to hold accountable every person found culpable in regard to the deaths.
"The government will do everything possible to find out who why and how a large number of our people met their deaths in such an inhumane number and anyone found in the path of accountability will have a date with destiny," he said.
The Interior boss added that the Judicial Commission of Inquiry, set to be appointed by President William Ruto, will then make recommendations on the appropriate action to be taken on persons found guilty.
"We are moving forward methodically and carefully to make sure that we get to the bottom of this matter," he said.
He also affirmed that the government will instil measures that will curb crimes similar to the Shakahola massacre upon completion of the probe.
"The kind of measures we are going to put will ensure that never again will we have this kind of crimes on the soil of our country."
