The police in Nairobi have initiated an investigation into the untimely demise of a Catholic priest, who was discovered deceased in his residence in Gigiri.

The 88-year-old priest was found unresponsive in his room on Sunday morning, according to a caregiver present at the house.

Preliminary information suggests that the priest had been dealing with complications related to high blood pressure.

While the police have not identified any visible injuries on the body, they await the results of an autopsy to determine the cause of death and gather additional information.

The caregiver at the priest’s house promptly alerted the police to the situation. Given the priest's ongoing battle with high blood pressure complications, it is likely that his health condition played a role in his sudden passing.

Police officers assisted in transferring the deceased priest's body to the mortuary, where it will undergo an autopsy and further examination.

At the time of transportation, no visible injuries were observed on the body. The purpose of the autopsy is to shed light on the cause of death and provide vital insights into the circumstances surrounding the priest's passing.
