16-year-old hearing impaired boy goes missing
The parents of a 16-year-old hearing impaired boy in Kwa Gitau, Nakuru County have had seven sleepless nights following the disappearance of their son last Sunday.
The teenager is said to have disappeared after he left the family home to attend a church service in the area.
Speaking to Citizen Digital at his Moricho home, the lost boy’s father, Peter Esmi, said that his son was last seen in Mogotio Center, Baringo County.
Esmi says that his son had boarded a boda boda which was meant to drop him off at the church. The rider, however, dropped him off at the Nakuru-Kabarak-Kabarnet road.
The boy then reportedly took a vehicle back to Mogotio; since then, his family’s efforts to trace him have been futile.
The parents are appealing to anybody with information on the whereabouts of their son to file a report at the nearest police station or at their respective provincial administration.
This incident comes just weeks after a missing 6-year-old child was found raped and murdered in Kabironi, Kirinyaga County.
Narrating the happenings around her daughter’s disappearance and subsequent murder, Margaret Murimi, revealed that her child, who was joining Class One on the day she went missing, was very excited to go to primary school.
“I got a phone call informing me that my baby’s body was found in our neighbor’s farm. They said that she had been raped and murdered brutally,” she recalled amid tears.
The mother asked the government to take action on the 15-year-old responsible for the violent act to the full extent of the law.
Over 1000 residents of Kabironi, Kirinyaga County held a demonstration that week to protest the defilement and brutal murder of the 6-year-old girl.
The irate residents however decried the increasing cases of rape and defilement in the area, blaming the chiefs and their assistants of inaction when such cases are brought before them.
