Pastor dies on top of a hookup lady in the hotel; Used ‘CD’ found

In an unfortunate incident, 60-year-old David Kiplangat, a respected elder and assistant pastor at an SDA church in Ketitui, met an untimely demise during an evening spent at a lodging in Kapsoit, Kericho, Kenya, accompanied by a female companion.

The lifeless body of Kiplangat was discovered by the woman, who promptly informed the accommodation management before leaving the scene. According to Belgut sub-county police commander Charles Kibati, Kiplangat was found deceased without any visible injuries and without clothing. A used contraceptive was found at the scene.

Confirming the incident, Kibati stated, “He was found dead with no visible injuries. He had no clothes at the time.” The body has been transported to the Kericho County Referral Hospital mortuary, where an autopsy is scheduled to be conducted.

Simultaneously, investigators are actively pursuing leads to locate and identify the woman who was with Kiplangat during the tragic event.

This unfortunate occurrence is not an isolated incident in the region. A similar case from the previous year involved a Catholic priest from St. Peters Ruai who died under mysterious circumstances in a hotel. Accompanied by a woman described as his girlfriend, the priest was rushed to the hospital after feeling unwell but was pronounced dead upon arrival.

In the earlier case, the police report indicated that the priest’s girlfriend had informed the hotel management when he began feeling dizzy and unconscious. The priest was discovered dead in his car, with white foam oozing from his mouth and nose. The body was subsequently moved to Mater Hospital mortuary in Nairobi for autopsy, and the food and drinks consumed during their night out underwent investigative analysis.

As authorities delve into the circumstances surrounding Assistant Pastor David Kiplangat’s death, the similarities with previous incidents raise concerns about the safety and well-being of individuals, particularly those in religious positions, while engaging in personal activities outside their pastoral duties. Ongoing investigations aim to unravel the mysteries behind these unfortunate events.
