Senior prosecutor Fredrick Ashimosi (pictured), who appeared to have predicted his death as a result of his troubled marriage has died mysteriously.
Ashimosi’s partially decomposing body was found in his house on July 26.
According to the Standard publication, the Senior Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions lived alone in Pioneer estate along Outering Road after deserting their six-bedroom matrimonial home in Diamond Park Estate. His death came just three days before judgement on a divorce case between him and his wife of 21 years.
The 47-year-old prosecutor had claimed in court papers that he had not known peace in his marriage, citing wrangles over claims of infidelity, witchcraft and devil worshipping.
A police officer at Balozi Police Post, who sought anonymity, confirmed that Ashimosi and his wife had been interrogated twice over their constant fights.
“The man and his wife had serious marital problems; theirs was not marriage but a union of convenience,” said the officer.
The prosecutor’s body was discovered on his bed on July 26, after his neighbours suspected something was wrong following a foul smell emanating from his house.
Police broke into the house and found a jiko next to his body. According to Buruburu Sub-County Police Commander (SCPC) Francis Kamau, Ashimosi could have died two days earlier before his body was discovered.
In May, Ashimosi decided to bare it all on what was troubling his marriage in the bitter divorce proceedings with his wife.
He accused his wife of being a witch and devil worshipper, who wanted to sacrifice him for material gain. He claimed that he deserted their matrimonial home after the wife allegedly unleashed majinis on him making him suffer from stroke.
“From the time she unleashed the majinis on me, I discovered that there were foreign elements in my body which were in spirit form and were pulling my legs, hands, mouth, neck, head, back, bones and other parts of the body with an intention of dismembering them,” he swore.
