Two Nominated Members of Muranga County Assembly want the law enforcing authority intensify investigations in the gruesome murder in separate incidents in Kangema.
The two, Eunice Kariuki and Ruth Wanjiku also want the National Police Service to unearth the reasons behind the heinous killings of an 8-year-old girl from Kianguku village who was killed and skinned before her private parts were removed and the killing of a woman who was killed and a huge stone placed in her neck.
Speaking after visiting the two families the MCAs said there is need by the County Security Committee to establish patrols during the night in bid to scare away wrong doers who could be hovering aimlessly and probably scheming to do evil things.
“The two murders are most foul, we want the police to do all what they can to establish the motive of the killing, we are also aware that the suspect who killed a woman is yet to be apprehended, police must arrest him in two weeks so that the family gets justice,” MCA Eunice said.
On her part, Ms Wanjiku called on government to speed up the fight against drug abuse saying hard drug abusers can only commit such actions.
“The war on drug abuse must be enforced, it is not normal for a sober and right thinking member of the society can kill and skin a fellow human being.” The MCA noted.
The killing of the 8-year-old minor left the village in shock as she was allegedly defiled, killed and her body taken some meters away under the tea plantations.
But it is the lack of bloodstains at the scene that baffled the locals who are yet to find any sign of bloodstains at any place in the village.
“Even if the girl was killed elsewhere and the body transferred to the scene, we could have seen bloodstains, and again the private parts were missing,” Gideon Gitahi said.
The deceased was a Standard One pupil at Rwathia Primary School and was the first born in a family of two
