Police officers investigating deaths of mother, daughter

Residents of a Naivasha estate are in shock after a woman and her teenage daughter were murdered and their bodies locked in their house for a week.

A foul smell emanating from the house in Sanctuary Farm off Moi South Lake road attracted members of the public, who found the decomposing bodies.

Initial investigations indicated that the duo were sexually abused by their attackers before they were murdered. They both suffered blows to the head.

The daughter was set to join Form One this week after residents held a fund raiser towards her school fees.

Emotions ran high as police, with the help of members of the public, moved in to collect the bodies. They were later ferried to Naivasha sub-county hospital mortuary.

According to a neighbour Simon Waithaka, the mother and daughter were last seen a week ago before they mysteriously disappeared.

Waithaka said that the woman worked in one of the farms around the area. The two who lived in a rented house were thought to have travelled upcountry.

“We were attracted to the scene by a foul smell and the house was locked from outside forcing us to break it,” Waithaka said.

He said the boyfriend, who has since gone into hiding, was last seen leaving the house before the bodies were found a week later.
