'Who Is Killing Girls In Uasin Gishu' Police In Shock After Series Of Killings

Tall and ageing silos dominate the sprawling Moi’s Bridge town on the border of Uasin Gishu and Trans Nzoia counties, announcing the town’s main identity for any newcomer.
Beneath the towering structures, however, the town has recently been shaken to the core by a spate of heart-wrenching serial killings. At least four young girls have been brutally murdered and their bodies dismembered before being dumped in thickets within 500 metres of the area.
Mothers are now perennially living in fear, constantly watching over their young girls, who could easily become the next prey for the monster, who could be living among them.
The police said they were treating the cases separately, although the pattern of the killings could indicate the presence of a serial murderer. The victims are aged between 10 and 13.
The fact that all the girls targeted were under the care of struggling single mothers, in primary school and were snatched away while walking alone in the backstreets of the town before being killed have baffled the police.
Ms Sharon Sakwa, 27, was looking forward to a prosperous 2020. She has a struggling retail shop in Teldet estate in the town. On New Year’s Eve, her life was, however, forever turned upside down. Her daughter Stacy Nasibo Achieng, 10, disappeared on December 31, 2019 at around 6pm. She was a Class Four pupil at Children Are People Academy.
“This has never happened before. It has been a tough time for the affected families. We just want to get to the bottom of this. We want to know who is killing our girls,” said Ms Tirop, nominated by Jubilee to represent young people in the assembly.Last year, Mr Mustafa Idd was arrested for the killings of two women in the town. The case is going on in the High Court in Eldoret and he has pleaded not guilty in the killings of Emma Wanyotta and Nancy Edome.
