The body of 11-year-old boy identified as Emanuel Kibet Kipkemboi has been found in a deserted home a few days after he went missing.
It was gathered that the boy who is from Jamii Bora estate in Kitengela, Kenya was the second-born child in a family of two children.
He was reported missing on the evening of Saturday, March 26 after the family failed to find him.The body of the Grade Five pupil at Sathya-sai School on the Isinya-Kiserian road was discovered in a pool of blood today in a deserted three-bedroom house a few metres from his parents’ home.
Neigbours had noticed bloodstains leading the house before they happened upon the murder scene. Police found a chisel and a hummer nearby.
“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,” said a neighbour.
According to a postmortem conducted today at Shalom Hospital in Athi River, young Kipkemboi died from multiple stabs in the head.
The body had 17 stabs in the head and neck.
