Orphans Left in Disarray after their Sponsor is slain
Several children’s homes have seen their orphans left in disarray after their sponsor was slain.
The orphans were among mourners who were assembled at Nyamakoroto village in Nyamira County to mourn the slain couple who were found dead in their residence yesterday.
The couple of Edward Morema Nyang’echi (63) and his wife (60) were based in the United States.
Their bodies were found lying within their compound on Tuesday.
“They used to pay for school fees for one of my three children until they completed their secondary school course and built a house for my son,” said one of the parents of the beneficiaries.
According to the villagers, the couple had visited the country for a holiday break from the USA unaware of what awaited them.
Morema’s mutilated body which had deep cuts on the neck was found lying in the home’s garage while his wife’s body was found in their bedroom.
The police took the bodies to Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital Mortuary for a post-modern and further investigation.
According to the detectives, the bodies of the slain couple’s mouths were covered with cloths and their hands were tied with binding wire.
“It seems that they were tortured before being killed,” said one of the police officers.
Nyamira North Sub-County Deputy Commander Robert Ndambiri confirmed the deaths but was not able to immediately confirm the reason for the couple’s murder.
“We have not established the motive behind the killing but we are not going to leave any stone unturned on this matter,” said the police officer.
The police officer implored anybody with useful information concerning the incident to help the police with investigations.
The strange deaths come a few days after a primary school teacher was murdered in the same county.
Nyamira Police confirmed the primary school teacher Mr Ezekiel Gentangwa’s mutilated body was found hidden under the carpet in his private lover’s house.
