The wife of one of the Kenyans who were killed by Al Shabaab in Elwak last week has recalled the last moments she spent with her husband before he died.
Cecilia Mukhwana says she remembers speaking to her husband who had explained to her that he was travelling from Elwak to Mandera to pick some materials for the company he was working with.
The mother of five painfully narrates how her husband had requested to talk to the kids before they went to school only to receive news later on that he had died.
“He called and told me there is a package he was going to pick in Mandera then get back to El Wak but before he hung up, he asked if he could speak to the children, but unfortunately he couldn’t because the children had already left for school,” she narrates.
“At around mid day, my father in law called and asked me if i had spoken to my husband, then i told her i only spoke to him in the morning, he then asked me to get my sister in law near me because there are some news he wanted to deliver to me. After taking me round in circles they finally delivered the news,” she tearfully narrates.
Her husband’s body has since been transported to Nairobi and an autopsy was done on Tuesday.
According to Mukhwana, an autopsy report done later on her husband revealed that he was shot six times by the outlawed al shabaab militia.
“Five of the bullets were pulled out on Tuesday during the autopsy. One had however passed his chest and went out,” mukwana states.
