His parents Rose Akoth and Ojoro Omuya are still remanded at Ahero Police Station after the court in Nyando allowed them to be detained pending conclusion of investigations.

The two are scheduled to take plea at the same court as their son sits his KCPE exams in hospital.

The boy’s parents, his biological father and step mother, are said to have wrapped his hands with newspapers, doused them with paraffin before setting his hands on fire accusing him of stealing a mobile phone.
