Three-year-old girl in Naivasha de­filed and killed

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

A three-year-old girl who has been missing for two days was found de­filed and mur­dered in Naivasha. The body was found in the bush on Karagita es­tate along the Moi South Lake Road. The child went missing on Sun­day evening while play­ing with her friends. Area chief Hus­sein Guyo urged the public to vol­un­teer any in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent to the po­lice or his of­fice. “The search has ended on a bit­ter note,” he said. Mean­while, the Public Health depart­ment in Nakuru county has said it fol­lowed due pro­ce­dure in bury­ing 19 bod­ies at the Lon­gonot public ceme­tery. Res­i­dents on Mon­day gave the county two days to ex­hume the bod­ies and bury them elsewhere. They said wild an­i­mals from the Mt Lon­gonot Na­tional Park ex­humed some bod­ies. Speak­ing on the phone, Health chief of­fi­cer Sa­muel Mwaura dis­missed the al­le­ga­tions as base­less and un­founded. He said the grave where the 19 bod­ies were buried was big enough. “Some peo­ple are op­posed to bod­ies be­ing buried at the ceme­tery­but we cur­rently do not have any other space for a ceme­tery in Naivasha,” Mwaura said.
