“I saw the mutilated body. The perpetrators must have had enough time to commit the crime and cover their backs. Nobody heard any distress call since the time the boy went missing,” a neighbour told the daily.

An autopsy exam conducted at the Shalom Hospital in Athi River showed that the minor died following multiple stab wounds to the head.

The report showed that Kibet suffered 17 stabs in the head and neck.

Those at the morgue told the daily that the young boy moved in with his mother after his father passed on in January.
