10 April 2012, 10:04 Alloys Musyoka

Police officers in Magarini district have launched a man hunt for suspects who murdered a 80 years old woman after they raped her at Gongoni location on Saturday night.The incident is said to have taken place a few meters from Gongoni Baptist Church in Magarini district.

The killers are said to have raided the house of the elderly woman at night when she was sleeping and started raping her in turns before they hacked her to death. Deceased body was found on Sunday morning few hours after the incident and was taken to Malindi District Hospital.

Magarini district Commissioner Mr. Richard Karani said that all family members of the deceased will be arrested to assist police in their investigations. He said provincial administration will keep its word of arresting them as many of such incidents have been organized by family themselves.

“We are going to arrest all family members so that they can help police with investigations as we said before,” said Mr. Karani. Malindi police Boss Mr. Koiprono Lang’at confirmed the incident and said that he was still gathering information on the incident.

“We are still gathering information on the incident and when we are through I will give you more information,” said Mr. Lang’at. Cases of elders being murdered in Malindi and Magarini have been rising every day despite provincial administration warning to arrest and prosecute suspects.

To locals living in the area the issue has remained as unanswered question which have also forced others to migrate to urban areas for fear of falling the pray of the attackers.
