19-Year-Old Man In Murder Of Two ECDE Minors Aged 4 And 5, Nabbed Hiding In Rachuonyo Bush

A 19-year-old man who murdered two ECDE minors in Homa Bay County has been nabbed hiding in Rachuonyo bush.

Police nabbed the suspect at Kogweno Oriang’ West in Rachuonyo North. He was staying in the bush.

The suspect is said to have killed 4-year-old Henry Ochieng and Vantaly Otieno, 5, on Friday.

The suspect, an ally and herdsboy of one of the kids’ families, allegedly lured to the boys to a grazing field where they went to look after cattle. The three did not come back home that evening.

This made the kid's family members alongside the area residents to launch manhunt for them.

The group hunt for the kids and first came across Vantaly’s clothes on the river bank before discovering his body.

About few distance, the residents saw Henry’ slippers. His body was floating in the river.

The suspect was nabbed on Tuesday hiding in the bush, few kilometres from where the bodies were discovered.

Kogweno Oriang’ West assistant local administrator Faraja Malit assisted the team in tracing the suspect.

According to Malit, the man grew thin because of hunger.

“He hid behind a tree on the bush, but when he get the wind of us, he tried to flee. He grew thin and kept staggering,” Malit said.
