By Paul Njau in Kiambu County.

Two boys from Bibilioni Village in Limuru, Kiambu County have been found dead after they were reported missing two weeks ago.

John Njenga, 13, and Kelvin Kariuki, 10, were last seen in public grazing livestock near Cha Manguo pond in Limuru on July 25.

On Thursday, August 6, children, who were herding goats near the pond saw the bodies of Njenga and Kariuki floating on the pool of water, prompting them to report the shocking discovery to residents.

Ngarariga Location Chief, Michael Kang’ethe, confirmed the incident, saying investigations to ascertain the cause of the children’s death have commenced.

“Their bodies had decomposed. As a result, it was difficult to know whether they had any torture-associated signs,” Kang’ethe told K24 Digital.

Bodies of the two were taken to Uplands Funeral Home awaiting postmortem.

Thirteen-year-old Njenga was a Class Eight pupil at Ngarariga Primary School, whereas his 10-year-old neighbour, Kariuki, was a Class Four pupil at Bibilioni Primary School.
