Family In Agony After Finding Their Young School Girl Who Had Gone Missing Dead

A family in Mutonga town in Mukurwe-ini, Nyeri County, is yet to come to terms with the brutal murder of a 13-year-old Form One student who had disappeared for three weeks.

The family of Margaret Waithira was found in a gunny bag that had been dumped in a river about a kilometer from her home, the family presently calling for justice as police initiate investigations. Jane Njeri is painful, struggling to deal with the loss of her little girl, a student at Ngwamwa Secondary School.

In any case, it is an aggravation she has borne for near a month, since Margaret Waithira vanished and endeavors to follow her proved pointless.

"Tumekuwa tukimtafuta kwa marafiki, kwa majirani, kila mahali, lakini hatukufanikiwa kumpata,” (we have been searching for her from friends, neighbors, everywhere, however we didn’t manage to find her , said Maina Kigio ,the young lady's uncle. After three weeks, on Monday evening, in a river, at a spot scarcely a kilometer from the girl's home, a gunny pack was found, and when police arrived, the content of the sack ended up being what the family feared; the remains of Waithira

"Saa ile hiyo mwili ilitolewa ililetwa hapa, na gunia ikakatwa na panga. Na walipotoa hiyo mwili ilikuwa ya msichana mdogo, nilipotazama hiyo mwili nikaona kiasi ya asilimia tisini ni ya Margaret Waithira Mbaire, ambaye ni mtoto wa ndugu yangu mdogo," (The moment the body was removed and brought closer the gunny pack was cut using a panga, and body the removed, I found that it was for a young girl with 90% resemblance to my younger brother’s daughter), said Kigio.
