Kinangop - It was a mixed reaction for Magumu villagers, Kinangop, after a 13-year-old boy stabbed an 11-year girl to death after she allegedly rejected his sexual advances.
According to area residents the boy stabbed Mary Nduta seven times using a kitchen knife before handing himself in to the police.
The girl’s mother Pauline Njeri says that the boy was their neighbor and she had not suspected anything going on between the two.
"We were called by neighbor and first rushed the girl to the nearby Magumu health center but she was referred to Naivasha sub-county hospital," she said.
Confirming the incident, Kinangop OCPD Yawa Chome added that the boy will have to undergo a psychiatrist check before being arraigned in court.
