Police spokesman Charles Owino confirmed the death and the arrests of the doctor and clinic owner.
"We have two suspects in custody and they are the ones who led detectives to the mortuary," he said.
Abortion is illegal in Kenya unless the mother's life is in danger, but government statistics show over 400,000 abortions are carried out annually.
In November 2018 authorities banned British charity Marie Stopes International over adverts it said promoted abortion, lifting it a month later.
Marie Stopes estimates some seven women die a day in Kenya in so-called backstreet abortions.
Popular police officer Hessy wa Dandora has sought to distance the police department from the death of activist Caroline Mwatha.
A Lets finalize this issue coz i can see some media houses have started asking funny questions like, who killed her blah, blah..and obviously all fingers will point police department: I want to put things straight here that no police officer is responsible for her death.
Carol was a married woman to a man working in Dubai but was 5 months pregnant for another man well known as Alex from Dandora.
She decided to seek intervention from local doctors within Eastlands of Nairobi with the motive of conducting an abortion to save her marriage.
She made the 1st attempt but was not successful, the second one again not successful: the third (3rd) attempt was conducted within Dandora phs 4 at a certain local clinic which caused serious damage and hence excessive bleeding.
Her close friends together with the local doctors involved in that operation decided to rush Caro to KNH with the aim of saving her life. Unfortunately, she had already gone, that was on 7th February, 2019.
Obviously, they had no option than to visit City mortuary. At the morgue, its believed they booked her in using different names and convinced the mortuary attendants that she died naturally. So far, Alex, one doctor plus two other local pharmacists are in custody.
Am sure someone will ask why Alex was arrested, he was arrested coz he’s the one responsible in facilitating the whole process.
I want to say this, that media houses plus other social platforms should stop broadcasting fake and defamatory information to tarnish the image of the police: next time before u start pointing fingers at the police, think twice: do your research properly before making any move to accuse the police. We dont jst kill innocent people, we normally eliminate armed gangsters to secure a safe environment for all us.
