Monday, February 25, 2019- Residents of Raiyani village in Ginthunguri, Kiambu County are still reeling in shock following the grotesque murder of a 95-year old grandmother, Peninah Njoki over the weekend.

The elderly woman had gone missing last week after attending a church service only for her lifeless body to be found at a nearby river.

She had been raped before being murdered and her body doused in acid.

Speaking to the media, her daughter-in-law, Edith Njeri said:

 I was shocked to find my mother (in law) dead. She was light-skinned but she was all dark, as if she had been burnt. I fear she might have been raped due to the position I found her in. She had scratches on the face and backside.”

She added: “My mother is loved by fellow villagers as she was used to visiting them and they would also treat her well. I wonder who would do the heinous act on a harmless old woman,”

Police have launched investigations into the gruesome murder but no suspects have been arrested.
