The manhunt had a heart-rending end after she was found cut up and stuffed in a bucket in what police claim was a ritual killing.

The person behind the gruesome murder was her brother Charles Kibe who was on the run before his capture.

Speaking to detectives at the Ruiru Police Station, Kibe said that the sister had confronted him over a packet of potato crisps he was eating that she was supposed to carry school.

As the confrontation got heated she allegedly stabbed him before Kibe took the knife and stabbed her to death. In panic after what he had done, he chopped up her body and stuffed her intestines and limbs in a bucket before hiding it on their roof.

The daughter of Elizaphan Mwaura Kibe and Agnes Wanjiru Mwaura was buried a day before Valentine’s Day in Thuraku Village, Gakoe Sub-location, Gatundu North Kiambu County.

President Uhuru Kenyatta whose home is in Ichaweri Gatundu,  sent out this message to the grieving family through the head of Intelligence in the Office of the President, Kennedy Kihara.

“Like many of you, we are parents. Our hearts go out to her parents at this time of grief. Like many of you, Gatundu is my home. So my heart goes out to my own community which has lost a young woman of achievement, of good character and of even greater promise. ” Uhuru said as reported by E Daily

In addition since they had only met half of the burial budget, the president offered to settle the remaining amount as the family goes through this tragic incident.
