Orphaned child gets a sponsor
02 August 2012, 15:04
The daughter to a murdered twilight lady in Nanyuki town four months ago has gotten a sponsor.
Baby Stacy Wanjiku aged nine months, has gotten a sponsor from a Charitable organization operating in Laikipia and Samburu Counties.
Vice President of the One More Day for Children(OMDC) foundation Ms Hellen Gathogo said the child will be sponsored through her guardian.
Speaking to the press in Nanyuki town, Ms Gathogo said the girl is under the care of her aunt Ms Rose Wanyua.
She is the daughter of Ms Agnes Wanjiru who was murdered and her body dumped at a septic tank in Lions court hotel.
This comes at a time when the Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko has ordered the Criminal Investigations Department to forward a police file on the murder of the woman allegedly by British Army soldiers.
In a letter dated July 13 this year, Ms Mary Wang’ele, on behalf of the DPP cited laxity in police investigations in a bid to arrest the alleged killers of Ms Agnes Wanjiru, 21.
Wang’ele noted that despite a report being made at Nanyuki Police Station, police were lax in probing the death, while witnesses were willing to testify.
“... there is laxity on the part of the police to comprehensively investigate the case and bring the culprits to book despite willingness by witnesses to come forth and testify. Be that as it may, i have been directed by the Director of Public Prosecutions to urgently call for the duplicate police file together with a progress report on the case for our perusal and further directions,” read the letter in part.
The body was found more than two months after she went missing, reportedly after an encounter with a British Army soldier on March 31 this year.
Ms Florah Nyaguthii and Susan Nyambura said they met Wanjiru on the fateful night at the hotel, where she was accompanied by two white men, whom they alleged to be British Army soldiers.
“Wanjiru joined us in the bar at around 11Pm and we started dancing.
Moment later I found her with a bottle of beer and I asked her to buy me some water and she told me that the beer was bought by a potential client who accompanied her,” said Nyaguthii.
That was the last day the mother of one was spotted alive.
Despite demands mounted against the British Army and the police, the woman could not be traced until her decomposed body was discovered in a septic tank more than two months later.
