Nakuru - Police in Nakuru have launched a manhunt for four men who allegedly killed a woman after sexually assaulting her at Mwariki estate on Tuesday night.
Speaking to the press Thursday morning at his office, Nakuru police boss Bernard Kioko said that the four men who have ever since gone into hiding were with the deceased woman the night before she was found dead in her house.
Kioko said that the four were said to have been spotted drunk in the company of the woman before escorting her to her house where they raped and killed her before fleeing.
“The middle-aged woman was said to have been with four men the night before her death where they went to a bar for drinks. They then escorted the woman back to her house before they gang raped and killed her. The woman was found half naked at the entrance of her house in the morning,” said Kioko.

Kioko added that the woman’s body was found by her 11-year-old son who informed neighbours who later alerted the police. Police said they suspected that she was drugged before being raped.
“The son came back in the morning and found her mother dead and he called the neighbours and the good thing is that the son knows the men who were with her mother the previous night. We are looking for them and are confident that we will catch up with them,” said Kioko.
The woman’s body was taken to the Nakuru county mortuary.
