Family seeking justice after 7-year-old boy’s body is found dumped in sewage
A family in Kayole, Nairobi County is seeking justice after the lifeless body of their son was found dumped inside a sewage hole.
The body of Jerome Chritiano, 7, was found inside the sewage hole and his parents say that he had injuries on his head.
According to Ms Maureen Auma, the mother of the minor, her son went missing on Thursday, January 19, 2023, and she was informed by the house help about the same.
“I was called by the house girl who told me that my son had gone out to play and when she went out to check on him, he was missing,” she said.
On receiving the news, the mother left her work and rushed home only to confirm that her son was nowhere to be seen.
It is then that she started tracing the last moments of her son who was scheduled to join grade three this week.
“My house girl informed me that she was seen speaking to a neighbour who was asking him personal questions which include; which school he was in, his name and who were his parents,” she said.
Ms Auma is now asking the police to investigate the matter and ensure that the suspect is arrested and arraigned in court over the disappearance and death of her son.
Kayole Sub County Deputy police commander Mr Jackson Sang, told Nairobi News that investigations into the matter are ongoing.
The minor’s mother said when the body was retrieved from the sewage hole, the son had injuries on his head and neck, raising the question whether he was killed before his body was dumped there.
The minor’s father, Victor Omondi, mourned his son’s death in a Facebook post.
“How sweet is your name, Jerome. And how sweet you are my boy. All is well that must end. See you soon Osiepa,” the post read.
