Kajiado: Shock as 17-year-old boy is linked with rape and murder of a minor

Shock has engulfed Githima village near Kiserian town in Kajiado County after a boy,17, allegedly abducted, defiled and killed a minor before dismembering her body.

Police are investigating the killing of Angela Wambui, 6, of Green Garden Academy.

Ngong police said Wambui’s body parts were recovered in Githima village stuffed in a gunny bag, some two kilometres away from her home.

The police said the boy is suspected to have committed the offence on Friday.

The suspect was arrested by members of public when he turned up at his home on Saturday afternoon before being handed over to Kiserian police station.

A senior superintendent of police in Ngong who sought anonymity, confirmed the boy was booked in at Kiserian Police station before being taken to hospital.

Members of the public allegedly beat the boy senseless when he showed up at his home.

“I can confirm the suspect is in our custody and we have taken him to hospital for treatment and later he will be examined following the defilement allegations” said the senior police official.

Resident Esther Mumbi said the suspect could have been under the influence of drugs.

Mumbi, who spoke to The Star on the phone, said the village is shocked by what happened since the suspect has history of being violent.

“What he has allegedly done has never been heard before and the entire village is wondering what bedeviled the boy. This is not normal for a boy his age to do,” Mumbi said.

Kajiado MP in hospital for breathing problems

Kajiado North MP Joseph Manje was yesterday taken to the Nairobi Hospital after developing breathing problems soon after being discharged from Karen Hospital.

His family took him to Nairobi Hospital where he was put in the high dependency unit.

Manje’s aide, Henry Kinuthia, said doctors are monitoring his condition.

Kinuthia said Manje’s blood pressure rose on Saturday night.

A message sent from Manje’s mobile phone to the Star said: “Just the way I was fighting for my people, I am now admitted at the high dependency unit in Nairobi Hospital fighting for my life. Pray for me and let the people of my constituency know that God will not forsake me.”

Kajiado Senator Peter Mositet confirmed that Manje is at the hospital.

Manja was previously in hospital after sustaining injuries during a demonstration in Ngong on November 11.

He had a minor operation on his hip joint that dislocated when he fled the rowdy youth.

Ngong MCA Paul Supet, who was with Manje during the fracas, said the legislator was being rushed back to his car after the riots intensified.

Manje jumped across a tunnel and dislocated his hip joint.

He had gone to witness a demolition on a plot.

Manje tried to calm down the youth and ask the police to stop the demolitions when the youth started throwing stones.

Ngong police boss George Openda denied claims that Manje was shot by police during the fracas.
