Independent Pathologist Peter Ndegwa said Thursday evening that Ms Mwatha had a male foetus of five to six months still inside her womb, but which is mutilated, one hand is missing and the skull badly injured.

According to the officers, Mwatha visited the clinic in Dandora Phase 4 on February 6. She went into a comma after apparently bleeding too much.
