Police in Kakamega, Kenya have begun investigations into the killing of a 13-year-old girl by thugs on Tuesday, September 8.
The criminals broke into the girl’s house in Shinyakha Village, Ikolomani Constituency in the afternoon, when her mother, who is a widow, was away at work.
The deceased was in the company of her younger sister aged 10 years during the raid.
The thugs, whose number remains unestablished yet, first defiled the sisters, and, thereafter, killed the elder of the two by hacking her in the head using a panga.
The criminals, thereafter, stole a television set, and escaped to an unknown destination.
A manager at the Office of Kakakamega Woman Representative Elsie Muhanda said the criminals had, three years ago, broken into the widow’s house, and raped her (widow).
“One year ago, the same thugs, I believe, again, raided the woman’s house and s.e.xually assaulted her eldest daughter,” said Muhanda’s aide Dan Mukofu.
Police say they have launched a hunt for the suspects.
The body of the 13-year-old girl was taken to a Kakamega hospital morgue.
