A middle-aged woman and two kids were found murdered by unknown people yesterday, Thursday mid-morning, inside a shop in Jambo village which is located in Karatina.
According to witnesses, the woman in the company of her child had opened the shop as usual and around 11 am people saw them seated outside the shop.
Her sister sent her child to buy cooking flour but little did she know that would be the last time for her to set eyes on her child again. Upon realizing that her son has overstayed at the shop and had taken more time than usual when sent on an errand, she decided to go in pursuit of him.
The shocked mother found the shops’ door ajar and the first sight she met was the dead bodies of her son whom she had sent to the shop, her sister, and her sister’s child. Grief struck the residents because this wild act is so inhuman.
According to Nyeri Police Commander Adiel Nyange, residents need to look for alternative dispute resolution methods rather than take matters into their hands.
The police Commander has appealed to members of the public to volunteer information that may lead to the arrest of the suspects. Police have launched investigations into the case.Follow us in social media:
