After going back and forth and listening to conflicting stories, the truth has finally come out. Results of a DNA test conducted on the body that had been lying in the Moi Voi Hospital mortuary since December 30th 2014 have confirmed that the body indeed belongs to missing ICC witness Meshack Yebei. Dr Ahmed Kaledi who is affiliated to Lancet Kenya announced this results which were in line with a DNA test that had been carried out by government pathologists.
Samples taken from the body matched those of his son and mothers DNA. A postmortem which will be carried out on the body later on will determine the real cause of his death.
Initially the body had been thought to be that of Yusuf Hussein, a matatu tout that had gone missing around the same time that Yebei couln’t be traced.
