Anxiety has hit Soliat village in Kuresoi North, Nakuru County following a body discovery of a 10-year-old Grade 3 boy was dumped at a maize plantation.
The boy who was sent by his mother to collect firewood earlier in the day failed to home after several hours. A quest party comprising more than two hundred villagers searched the area, only to find the minor’s body at about 9 pm on Thursday.
Statements say the pupil was attacked and defiled at around 4 and 7 pm on Thursday 29th of October before his body was found in a sack. According to Soliat Village Elder, Mr Samuel Langat said the minor’s body had been tied up all over by the attacker.
The minor’s Albert Kurgat stated his child did not return home after leaving the house to collect firewood in a nearby bush.
After raising an alert, over 200 villagers gathered at the residence and started the frantic search. Policemen from Kuresoi Police Station arrived at 3 am and drove the body to the Molo Hospital Morgue.
