Angry women lynch to death man who raped and murdered schoolgirl

23 October 2014, 20:54 Jane Zack

Nairobi - A 23 year old man was Thursday killed by angry women in Kipsikirok Village Mt Elgon Constituency on suspicion that he allegedly raped and murdered a school girl.

The suspect who was subjected to mob justice by the women is said to have kidnapped a 14 year old school girl, who had been sent to fetch firewood in the nearby Mt Elgon forest last Saturday. 

Chepyuk Area Assistant Chief Rodgers Sangula said the Kibumet Primary School pupil lifeless and naked body was found the next day with a slit throat.

“We found the body of the minor in the forest a day after she went missing, on Sunday in the forest. Her throat was slit open and she had been raped,” Sangula said.

 Cheptais Sub-county OCPD Ezekiel Kiche confirmed the incident, and appealed to members of the public not to take the law into their hands, noting that criminal suspects are useful to police if they are alive.

“When you subject someone you suspect of committing a crime to mob justice, they die with information that could have otherwise been useful to security agents.  If we arrest these culprits they can tell us who their accomplices are,” said the police boss, who noted that innocent people can also loose their lives through mob justice.
