Police in Nyamira are yet to arrest two main suspects of the four men who ferried two minors and intoxicated them with alcohol before defiling them.
Catherine Nyaera 60, the grandmother to the two minors had sent the two girls to Ekerenyo shopping centre for shopping on Thursday evening.
On their way back home at around 6:30 pm they met two boda-boda riders who are well known to them who offered them lifts. One of the riders is known to the juvenile as Alfayo while the other one is known by appearance.
After the girls got onto the motorbikes, the riders sped towards Nyakongo general direction, a different direction from the girls’ home.
Along the way, the riders were joined by two of their colleagues who were identified to the little girls as Douglas Moturi 20 and Milton Osoro 25, after which they ended up in the neighbouring village of Obwari within Nyamira North Sub-County.
According to Nyamira County Commissioner Amos Mariba, the two little girls ended in the house of one Alfayo where they were forced to drink an alcoholic substance which they believed to be chang’aa and got intoxicated before being defiled.
“Early Friday morning at about 6:00 am the little girls were dragged and dumped along a murram road where a good Samaritan picked them and escorted them to Ekerenyo Sub-County hospital where they were admitted and are in stable condition,” said Mariba in a statement.
He noted that two suspects; Douglas Moturi and Milton Osoro have been since arrested and are in police custody, whereas the main suspects; Alfayo and his accomplices are still at large, saying police are making all the efforts to apprehend them.
