Detectives are holding a boda boda operator from Kerugoya, Kirinyaga County at Kerugoya Police Station for harbouring two school going sisters who were  reported missing by their kin over a month ago.

According to the girl’s father, John Munene Murioki, the sisters, one in Form Three and Form Four, went missing from their homestead with no trace for over a month now which prompted him to seek assistance from the authorities only to find out that they have been rented an apartment by the suspect in Kiatha village.

“I had reported the matter to the area assistant chief regarding my missing daughters, and I’m fortunate to have discovered who was sheltering them and providing them with money to stay in his rented house at Kiatha village.

“I was shocked to find some of my things in the man’s house. It appears that my daughters took a few things from my house when they went missing. I want action to be taken against this man for misleading my daughters,” The frustrated Murioki told one of the local media.

Kimandi location Chief Ruth Nduro while commenting on the matter warned men in the area against preying on school girls, underscoring that stern action will be taken against them.

”Be careful because you will be handed a lengthy sentence when the law catches up with you,” she said.

The sisters will undergo tests to ascertain whether they were subjected to sexual abuse by the suspect as he is set to be arraigned on Monday, May 13, 2024.
