Governor shocked by the murder of 5 school girls

04 July 2014, 11:36

Nakuru - Nakuru Governor, Kinuthia Mbugua was shocked by the alleged murder of five teenagers who had gone missing for a week in Molo.

Mbugua attended a mass funeral for three of the five girls whose bodies were found dumped in various places near Molo town after their disappearance.

He said that the series of murders shows how some people have lost respect for the sanctity of human life.

“By any standards, this is not a small issue. In the recent past there have been incidences of murders that we haven’t quite understood,” said Mbugua.

The disappearance of the girls and the subsequent discovery of their bodies sent shock waves in the county.

The body of one of the teenagers, 15-year-old Naomi Nyarangi, was found four days after she disappeared.

The mutilated body was already rotting according to Nyarangi’s father, who was part of the search team.

The father, Kennedy Onseri said that his daughter, a student at Molo Secondary left for school on June 25 and did not return home that evening.

“I went to school on Thursday morning to inquire whether she returned but the teachers and fellow students did not know her whereabouts,” said Onseri.

He later found the body of his daughter rotting in a nearby stream.

It is suspected that the killers waylaid the girls as they went back home late in the evening after school.

A suspect in the grisly series of murders targeting teenage school girls was lynched on Wednesday in Molo town.
