Family of slain girl wants justice
The family of Elvinah Moracha, the Sengera Seventh-day Adventist School student killed last Sunday, is seeking justice before they bury her.
They said they want police investigations concluded and the key suspects arrested.
Family spokesman Simeon Ongido said they are worried at the pace of the investigations, claiming it is "painfully slow and calculated to defeat justice". He lamented that, days after they reported the incident, they have received no updates from the police.
“Everything appears to have gone silent since we filed a report at the Kenyenya Police Station. We are now worried that we might not get justice,” said Mr Ongido.
They now want Inspector-general of Police Joseph Boinnet to intervene to ensure that the killer is found. “We are looking to him to provide guidance so that our daughter can get justice before we bury her,” he told the morning on phone.
Elvinah, a 17-year-old Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education student, was revising at their home in Mariba, Kenyenya, when a person suspected to be a jilted boyfriend lured her out into the night. She was strangled and her body dumped in a fish pond, where it was found on Monday.
On Tuesday, Elvinah's mother, Ms Rabera Moracha, said they suspected the man had been constantly communicating with her daughter on the fateful night. on Friday
