The death toll from Shakahola tragedy has reached 243 after one of the victims rescued died at the Malindi Sub County Hospital.
Chief government pathologist Dr. Johansen Oduor confirmed that 36 autopsies had been done on Tuesday.
The postmortem process of the 129 bodies recovered in the second phase of the exhumation exercise began last week.
Odour said only 16 bodies were remaining to complete the exercise to pave the way for phase three of the exhumation.
Interior CS Kindiki Kithure has revealed that more mass graves had been identified by the homicide detectives.
The victims fell prey to cult-like teachings by Paul Mackenzie Nthenge, founder of the Good News International Church, who allegedly lured his faithful into starving themselves to death ‘to find God’.
