Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki is on Thursday expected in Malindi to oversee the commencement of the second phase of postmortem examinations of 129 additional bodies exhumed from the Shakahola mass graves.

Kindiki will later visit the public information, tracing and social support centre in the area.

The centre is helping families and friends whose kin are missing or have been identified after exhumation at the forest.

The CS will also talk to the search and rescue operation team that is in the area, officials said.

He will later address the media to give an update on the exhumation and search and rescue mission.

Officials had by May 24 exhumed and recovered 240 bodies from the Shakahola Forest, Kilifi County, on land linked to cult leader Paul Mackenzie.

Mackenzie is being investigated for crimes including aiding suicide, after allegedly convincing members of his Good News International Church to starve themselves to death in order to meet Jesus.

The cult leader and tens of suspects have been arrested amid investigations and a court case to establish what happened in Shakahola.

Coast Regional Commissioner Rhoda Onyancha said 32 suspects are in custody.
