Police have now commenced investigations on what might have resulted in the sad death of the prominent author and journalist

KDRTV understands that a postmortem conducted by Dr. Johansen Oduor revealed that Walibora had a deep cut between his thumb and index finger which was seemingly not as a result of the motor vehicle accident

According to the postmortem done by the government pathologist, the death of Walibora is a complicated puzzle

Dr. Oduor said that the injury in the professor’s right arm is what needs further investigation by the state

“He had a wound cut caused by a sharp knife on the space between his thumb and the index finger which is not familiar with motor vehicle accidents,” reveals the government pathologist.
