The body of a one-year-old child, reported missing by her parents on February 1, has been tragically discovered in a pit latrine in Ruai, Nairobi. The grim find was made by a man relieving himself in the latrine on February 4, three days after the child’s disappearance was reported to the local police.

The circumstances leading to the discovery are unclear, and the man who found the body is currently being interviewed by the police to ascertain his knowledge of the incident. Authorities, with the assistance of residents, successfully retrieved the body from the latrine, transferring it to the mortuary for an autopsy that will guide the ongoing investigation.

Nairobi police boss Adamson Bungei stated that they are treating the case as a murder and emphasized the importance of the autopsy in providing crucial details for the probe.

In a separate incident, a 60-year-old man was arrested in Kirinyaga County in connection with the murder of a 32-year-old man, identified as James Njagi. The suspect, reportedly the father of the victim, allegedly stabbed his son in the chest during a dispute over a piece of land. The weapon was recovered at the scene, and the body awaits autopsy in the mortuary.

Additionally, the police in Webuye, Bungoma county, are investigating the murder of a 17-year-old boy found with multiple injuries on the roadside in the Misimo area. The motive remains unknown, and the incident, which occurred on February 3, is under investigation with no arrests made so far.
