At least 20 dead bodies have been retrieved from a river in western Kenya in recent weeks, according to a human rights group.
Most of the bodies recovered from River Yala, which flows into Lake Victoria, were ‘found in sacks, some tied up’ and others mutilated.
Haki Africa’s Executive Director Hussein Khalid added that the “local mortuary was receiving the unidentified bodies and had buried nine of them in a mass grave to make space for more bodies.
Locals say the bodies are dumped into the river at night by unidentified people.
Khalid and another activist, Boniface Mwangi, travelled to the scene, and say they saw two bodies floating on the river.
