Kenya: Missing Nation Employee Mildred Odira found at City Mortuary

A woman identified as Mildred Odira, who went missing last week while being taken to hospital, has been found at the City Mortuary.

Odira, who worked for Foresight company as a switchboard operator based at the Nation Media Group, was last seen on Tuesday at 4am by security guards in her Kariobangi South residence.

In an interview, her sister Maureen Anyango said they found her body at the City Mortuary on Monday.

She said “Millie is no more, we have found her at the City Mortuary”.


Colleagues at the Nation, where she had been stationed for many years, were thrown into shock following reports of her body had been found in the mortuary.

According to her sister, Mildred Odira a mother of one, had been ailing before she became missing Tuesday morning

However, a taxi driver was on Saturday arrested by police for questioning in connection with her disappearance.


The driver had on Friday told the family that he drove and left Mildred at Ruaraka Uhai Neema Hospital and was only at the facility for about 20 minutes.

But according to the hospital records seen by Nation, the driver entered the hospital gates at 4:30am and left at 5:57 am, which contradicted her kin’s narrative.

The hospital’s management said it will review their CCTV footage to ascertain what the taxi driver was doing at the facility for that long.
