Nairobi - A 14-year-old Form One student was raped and brutality murdered at their home in Kihila village, Chango Sub location, Vihiga County on Saturday night.
She lived with her maternal grandmother, Ruth Imali, who was not at home when the incident occurred.
Her uncle, who lives a different house within the same compound had gone to wake her up Sunday morning when he found her dead.
Confirming the incident, Vihiga police boss Alfred Angengo said they were suspecting the beastly act had been conducted by one person.
“We recovered a used condom at the scene, which was used to rape her before she was killed. We are suspecting she was either killed using a panga or an axe as her neck was cut,” Angengo said.
Angengo said investigations have been launched and asked locals to volunteer information that may lead to the arrest of those responsible for the beastly act.
