A family in Molo has pleaded with the police to help them find their boy who went missing three days after he underwent circumcision.

His parents have said that he must have been carried by someone because he was not even in a position to walk.

“We do not know where he is because he does not even have a phone. We think he might have been carried away because he was not in a position to even walk,” said Macharia Karanja, the missing boy’s father.

Karanja said it is even harder for the family to trace him because he did not carry his phone.

David Kinyua, the chairperson of popular Nyumba Kumi, has appealed to the public at large and the police to intervene and help solve the matter.

Hunt for man who stabbed to death Class Seven pupil in Migori begins

Police have begun investigating the killing of a Class Seven pupil at Rapogi trading centre, Migori County.

Rairi Primary School pupil was stabbed to death on Saturday night by an unknown assailant.

According to a night guard who witnessed the incident, the girl was attacked at around 11:00 pm.

The watchman further told the police that he saw the assailant chase the 17-year-old girl before ending her life.

The suspect escaped on foot.

Efforts to save the girl were futile as she had lost too much blood from the stabbing on her neck and chest.

Uriri Sub County Police Commander Peter Njoroge pointed that the hunt for the suspect was on as they hope to make arrests.

“We have not made any arrest in connection to the incident but we will soon get to the bottom of the matter. It is just a matter of time before the suspect is arrested,” said Njoroge.

Residents now want the police to step up night patrols in the area, saying cases of insecurity have increased in the recent past.

“It is only frequent patrols that would restore security in the area,” a resident said

The body of the girl was moved to Rap Com Hospital mortuary in Awendo sub-county.
