“The girl normally passes by her neighbour’s house on her way from school and we suspect she might have identified those who broke into the house thus the brutal murder to cover evidence,” he said.

The OCPD said that investigations are underway, and appealed to anyone with information about the killers to forward it to the police.

He also encouraged residents of Mathingira area to embrace the nyumba kumi initiative so as to avoid such incidences.
