Outrage as 12-year-old girl is strangled after testifying in court

She had said she was defiled by a neighbour who is a close friend of her stepfather

Her mother said her daughter, a pupil at Anyiko Primary School in Ligega, Ugenya, Siaya County, told her she was defiled by a neighbour, a close friend of her stepfather as reported by The Standard.

Close friend

“On Friday morning, I went with Cheryl to school. The head teacher told me to report the matter to police and take her to the hospital. I did exactly that and tests revealed she had been defiled.

“Cheryl said it was not the first time she had been defiled by this man. He had done it several times. The matter of defilement is in court now,” said the mother.

Justice

The family now wants police to establish who killed the girl.

"We want justice. We also want to know if there is any link between her murder and the case in court," said her mother.
