A middle-aged man was on Tuesday night found dead in his car that was parked next to a petrol station in Otongolo area, Kisumu along Kisumu-Busia road.

Confirming the matter, Kisumu County Police Commander Samuel Anampiu told People Daily that the matter was reported by a security guard manning the petrol station.

The man was found in a Toyota Vitz car with a registration number KCW 646J.

Officers from Kogony Police Post were deployed to the scene after getting the report.
