Anger has gripped Chitago village in South Mugirango following the murder of a nine year old who was allegedly defiled before being killed.
The body of the Standard Three girl was found dumped in a bush on Tuesday after she disappeared on Monday evening.
Her parents mounted a search when the girl did not return home after she was sent to collect milk from her aunt’s house a short distance away.
Isaiah Nyangweso, the girl’s father, and her aunt Drusilla Kemunto, said she usually took less than 30 minutes to get back home and did not stay long on her errand.
The body was recovered less than a kilometer from home after villagers found a handwritten anonymous note on the road describing where the body could be found and the names of suspects.
According to the note, the suspects had been paid Sh100, 000 to kill either the girl or her father. Angry villagers turned on one of the suspects and hacked him to death. A house belonging to another suspect was set ablaze as police urged for calm.
“We do not encourage mob justice neither will we tolerate rape and defilement,” County Police Commander Hassan Abdi said.
