Residents of Riuriro village in Juja are living in fear after one of the residents- a middle-aged woman- found a baby-sized coffin dumped at her doorstep with a warning letter attached to it.

The miniature coffin which appeared to have been made hurriedly but complete with a cross was tethered to a sisal rope.

The contents of the little coffin remain unknown as the woman’s family was too afraid to venture further.

“I walked outside to feed the chicken when I noticed the little box, I was not sure what it was or who had dropped it, it was after I ventured closer that I realized it was a coffin ” she told Inooro radio.

On top of the coffin a warning written in blue ink said “be prepared, it is your turn Faith wa Mwangi Tutakuja”

Although the intention of the act remains unclear, the middle-aged woman who lives alone believe it may be connected to people who want her to vacate the premises.

“I will not move, this is my land and my house, I may live alone but I will not move” she said.

The matter has been reported to a nearby police station although no suspect has been arrested so far.

Residents want police officers to expedite investigations into the matter, saying they are having sleepless nights wondering if they will be targeted next .
