Police have launched investigations into the gruesome murder of a disabled woman in Machakos.

The lifeless body of the 37-year-old woman, who lived alone in Kalama Location, was found half-naked on her bed on Wednesday morning.

Police suspect she was raped and then her crutches pushed in her private parts.

According to police report, Esther Wavinya Mwanthi's body was found by her relatives who live in the same compound before they alerted the area chief.

Her body was moved to Machakos Level Five mortuary for autopsy as police investigate the bizarre murder.

Her death comes as another lifeless body of a 24-year-old prison warder was on Wednesday morning found inside her house in Kiharu, Muranga county.

The body of Pauline Wangari, who until her death was stationed at Muranga GK Prison, was found with multiple stab wounds on the head and chest.
