Man arrested for allegedly kidnapping two minors
A middle-aged man was arrested on Saturday for allegedly kidnapping two girls in Mwatheini village in Mwea, Kirinyaga county.
Detectives investigating the kidnapping tracked the man to Kimunye in Gichugu Constituency about 40km from the place of the kidnapping.
The two girls, aged 12 and 2 years, were found dumped near the Kimbimbi trading center just a day after the suspect was arrested.
The two sisters were reported missing on December 29, 2019, while returning home after a church service.
The kidnapper had demanded a ransom of Sh200,000 but the family was yet to raise the money by the time the children were found.
The suspect is being held at the Wang’uru Police Station.
