Barely days after a child-trafficking syndicate was foiled in Nairobi, a family in Chuka is making a desperate appeal to member of the public to volunteer information that my help them get their two missing children back.
In what reads like a movie script, Doreen Kawira whose 6-year-old daughter has gone missing told Citizen Digital that it all began when she welcomed a Class 5 girl into her house at 8pm last week on Friday.
The young girl said she was lost and was trying to locate her aunt who she claimed, lived nearby.
Since it was already late, Ms Mawira said she welcomed the girl into her home as she attempted to locate her aunt.
The mother of one said she had texted the girl’s area chief and also informed her area chief that she would be living with the girl until her aunt was located.
After attempts to locate her aunt failed, her area chief advised the family to return the girl to her parents home in Kianjai.
On Thursday, after the woman left for work, the Class 5 pupil disappeared with two children aged 6 and 3.
Area Chief Gitonga Kawere confirmed the incident saying the school girl also stole some money from the house before fleeing.
The family spent Thursday night combing the area for the three children to no avail.
The matter is currently under police investigations.
