Karanja noted that three others had already found employment as house girls in the neighborhood but the police were able to trace them with the help of the others.
He added that the house in which their daughters were found belonged to a young man from their village who worked as a casual labourer and who was not at home at the time.
He said he was shocked when neighbours informed them that their daughters stayed holed inside the house by day but at night, they were taken away by men.
The parent now wants the police to arrest boda boda operators who ferried them away from the village, expressing fears that the girls could run away again if the friendship between them exists.
“My girl is normally very quiet and sharp. She does not leave home and is always studying. I am afraid if the bodaboda operators are not arrested, they will continue to be a negative influence on her and the others,” he said.
Gatanga Deputy County Commissioner David Rotich confirmed that the girls were found on Saturday evening and are being held at Makongeni police station for interrogations.
On Monday night, a 30-year-old M-Pesa attendant was shot dead by an AP officer in Ruai after she turned him down.
Ruth Wangui was shot three times with an AK-47 on the fateful night.
According to the police investigations, Ruth Wangui was shot after Geoffrey Muthee asked why she chose another man over him.
Later after his henious act, Muthee is said to have attempted to commit suicide by shooting himself.
He survived and is admitted at a Nairobi hospital with a bullet wound in the mouth.
Nairobi DCI chief Ireri Kamwende said Wangui was hit by the bullets in the chest and stomach.
Officers from the Ruai DCI released a preliminary investigations report indicating Muthee and Wangui had known each other for barely a month.
Muthee is said to have left college last year and was recently transferred to Ruai AP camp.
According to the report, Muthee was a frequent visitor to Wangui’s M-Pesa shop and was therefore known to other business operators in the area.
Wangui is said to have turned down Muthee’s overtures, but the two were in talking terms.
The report said Muthee was heading to the AP camp at 8pm on Monday when he met Wangui.
They spoke briefly and Wangui walked back to her shop. It is then that the officer followed her and shot her before turning the gun on himself.
“AT ONE POINT, MUTHEE WAS OVERHEARD SHOUTING THAT WANGUI WAS IN ANOTHER RELATIONSHIP,” THE REPORT SAYS.
An ex boyfriend of Ruth has taken to his social meida to mourn her and pay tribute to her.

Ruth Kamande who won Miss Langata Prison 2016 confessed to killing her boyfriend using a kitchen knife during her trial yesterday.
She said she had an argument with her boyfriend after seeing a HIV card which was under his name and was hidden under his Mattress. Mohammed who had been hiding his situation confronted her about it and threatened to kill her if she told his family about his status.
“Farid told me that he would rather kill me and himself than have his status exposed. l stabbed him severally using a kitchen knife, which fell on my chest from his hands after I overpowered him after putting my two thumbs in his eyes to save my life,” Kamande said.
She told Justice Jessie Lessit that what she did was under self defense and that the boyfriend attacked her first when she was packing her clothes.
Kamande also claimed they had an argument the day before the murder over love letters she found hidden under his bedside locker and that he took and tour to show that they didn’t mean anything to him.
She said that during the struggle with her boyfriend, he inflicted several injuries on her before overpowering and stabbing him several times. She denied that she had stabbed her self to cover up the situation and that she did it since she was in a state of fear, panic and shock to save her life.
“Your honour, it pained me to know that the person who l loved and trusted so much was to ruin my life by infecting me with HIV and Aids,” Kamande said.
The neighbours intervened after hearing the young man crying for help and when they got to the house they found it locked and saw through the window Mohammed bleeding out and the girl holding the kitchen knife standing next to the deceased.
Among the exhibits retrieved at the murder scene were love letters sent to the deceased from one of his girlfriends in the US, a damaged mobile phone handset and the murder weapon.
