"HAKI Africa is distraught, sad and angry at news coming in indicating that the body of comrade Caroline Mwatha has been found at the City Mortuary in Nairobi. 

The late Mwatha was a human rights defender attached to the Dandora Justice Center documenting extra judicial killings.

Since the weekend, HAKI Africa has been following up on the matter including joining fellow comrades at Dandora Justice Center in Nairobi yesterday (Monday) for the vigil and other efforts to pile pressure for Caroline Mwatha to be found.

The news of her lifeless body lying in the mortuary has sent shock waves across the human rights sector and sadness to friends, families and comrades of Caroline Mwatha. 

As an organization we remained hopeful that she would be found alive.

As HAKI Africa, we want to assure the public that Caroline Mwatha's death will not be in vain as we will relentlessly continue to pursue the cause she was fighting for. 

We demand that all security and investigative authorities be posted to investigate her death and bring those responsible for her demise to book. Justice for Caroline must be done.
