Kisii County Police Coordinator Martin Kibet has confirmed the incident saying the minors could have known the killer.
"It is unfortunate that somebody can opt to do such a thing. Nothing justifies the killing of innocent souls. We will do all we can to apprehend the killer," says Kibet.
One of the area residents; Athonly Machoka has told the Standard that the mother to the two girls identified as Gladys had gone to the market leaving behind the two girls.
