The girl is reported to have committed the offence on the 16 November 2020 before undressing the 15 year old in order to confuse the investigators. The police reported that the motive of undressing the victim was to make it appear like a rape and a murder case.
According to the criminal detectives, the unidentified girl was a class 8 pupil at Kaitha Primary School in Mwala, Machakos county. After committing the crime, the young lady led the investigators to the scene of the murder and on reaching, they recovered a rope and a murder weapon in the bush.

The police have launched investigations to unravel the motives behind the young girl strangling her friend to death. As a result, the boy at the center of all the drama was also picked by the police officers so that he helps in the investigations.
Murder cases involving the young due to love triangles have become common in Kenya. In most cases, the parties resort to ending lives as the best avenues for addressing disagreements as opposed to using peaceful methods.
