Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations has launched a manhunt for a 15-year-old juvenile who allegedly stabbed her 18-year-old brother Anthony Nganga to death with a kitchen knife.
DCI detectives based at Githunguri took up the case after the juvenile’s uncle, John Wangendo filed a report at Kibichoi Police Station. Wangendo alleged that the juvenile killed her brother after they disagreed on how to spend ksh200 their mother had given them to buy food.
The agency’s statement read;
“The uncle recounted to our officers how a bitter confrontation ensued between the two after the 15-year-old girl demanded to be given the money to make her hair, instead of buying food. But when her elder brother would hear non of it, she picked a kitchen knife and stabbed him leaving him unconscious in a pool of blood. She then fled the scene leaving the murder weapon behind.”
Anthony was rushed to Kigumo level four hospital by his uncle, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Meanwhile, his body has been preserved at the same facility for postmortem.
Crime detectives have since visited the scene and collected crucial evidence, relevant to bringing the suspect to justice.
