A postmortem on the body of a lecturer’s wife who died in her house in Lavington, Nairobi, shows she suffered lung-related complications.
The autopsy on the body of Rebecca Gombe Mwachongo showed she had pulmonary oedema.
Her husband, Dr Fred Ogola, was arrested and presented in court on Wednesday as police sought more time to complete their investigations.
Pathologists said her lungs had fluid and there were no physical injuries on her body. Also, she had a blood clot in the left atrium and traces of blood in the carotid artery.
The postmortem was conducted by Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor and another pathologist hired by Ms Mwachongo’s family.
Dr Oduor said nothing could be ruled out as the cause of the condition. “It needs further tests, but that is it for now,” said Oduor.
