A highschool teacher Jane Ngunjiri,51, told her husband Samuel Ndegwa on 14th June that she would go to town the following day to guarantee a Sacco loan for a teacher colleague from St Angela's Girls High School in Kiambu.

June 15 that was the last day the family set eyes on her as her phone also did not go through.

Exactly two months later on Friday last week, police found her body on the banks of a river in a forest along the Eastern Bypass, North Airport Road in Nairobi.

The severely decayed and undefined body was taken to City Mortuary.

Police called her husband because they had a list of missing persons and family contacts.

Ndegwa recognized her clothes, teeth arrangement and pattern.

Finding the body was a relief as the family would officially mourn and move closer to moving on.

"We have searched for her every single day since June 15 and it has been an incredibly harrowing ordeal. We are a step to closure," Ndegwa said.

He said the body was disintegrated that an exhaustive postmortem analysis and DNA matching were necessary before the body can be released.

On Monday, father and daughter gave DNA samples.

The family added that there was no conflict at home, no conflict with anyone they knew.

Who could have wanted her dead? Police haven't said it was murder but that's suspected.

"I don't know who could have killed her or how. You don't want anybody to go through what we are going through," the deceased husband said.

"She was always a quiet, very hardworking woman. Her class was the best," he said.

Jane was always at home since schools have been closed due to Covid-19.

She did a lot of physical exercises.

"We identified her by her tooth pattern and the clothes she wore last. However, the police still want us to do a DNA match to confirm our claim to the body," Ndegwa said.
