Just like any other person yearns for fun, so was Mr. Nelson Otsianda, a Secondary School teacher from Buruburu, Nairobi. Little did he know that that would mark his last day on earth.
Mr. Nelson (now deceased) had joined four of his colleagues for a weekend getaway in South Coast, before his mysterious death that has left many questions than answers.
Nelson and four colleagues had checked in at Gisimba Villas on November 13, where they had intended to spent a couple of days.
However, things took a sudden twist of fate after his lifeless body was discovered the same day at the facility’s swimming pool. Speculations are high that Nelson got murdered before hsi corpse was thrown into the waters.
Discreet sources indicate how the late and his colleagues were making merry and playing loud music near the pool. “We found them trying to resuscitate Nelson…
…The owner of the hotel called police officers who took long to arrive, forcing the friends to hire a boda boda to ferry him to Diani Beach Hospital,” notes one of the staffers.
A CCTV footage at the same time shows the group engaging in a confrontation shortly past 7pm the day they arrived. The team also allegedly checked out prematurely on Sunday.
Nelson’s sister Ms. Dorothy Anangwe recalled meeting his brother’s colleagues at the entrance of Neptune Hotel, near Gisimba Villas where Nelson met his death.
They told her that her brother and their friend had drowned. Ms. Dorothy was aware of the Diani trip by his brother and colleagues since he had told him prior.
However, she never imagined that his brother who she loved so much would die there. The bereaved family reported traces of blood and broken glasses by the pool where Nelson met his death, while Nelson’s dad Mr. Claude Otsianda said he never knew his friends.
Of a greater concern is why the friends had to check out before Nelson’s family arrived, and why investigators took so long to initiate investigations days after Nelson died.
With the CCTV footage confrontation evidence, the family believes that Nelson got murdered, and his corpse dumped into the pool to cover the murder.
Msambweni OCPD Fanuel Nasio has pledged that investigations will be done over the matter. Currently, Nelson’s corpse lays at Jocham morgue awaiting postmortem.
The late holds a Bachelor of Education degree from Egerton University. He briefly taught at Mount Laven Secondary in Nairobi in 2013 before proceeding to Kakuma Refugee Camp, where he taught at two schools between 2014 and 2018.
In 2018, he got employed by the Teachers’ Service Commission (TSC), and taken to Buruburu Girls’ School where he has been teaching till he met his untimely demise.
