A witch has been arrested in Mpingo village in Magutuni Maara subcounty in Tharaka Nithi county after butchering a grade 2 girl from the locality for an alleged sacrifice.
According to aggrieved neighbours who were baying for his blood, the girl was called from nearby church where the church has bought a parcel of a land from the girl’s assailant to deliver milk to the man as it has always been the norm.
What followed in the assailant’s house is the inhuman act of butchering the young girl before cutting open on her chest and extracting her heart to allegedly perform some rituals for his client who had come for his services.
Upon raiding the man’s home, it was discovered that the man had also a goat and a chicken’s hearts boiling in a pot with the remains of the goat and the chicken still within the vicinity.
As the police embark on deep investigations into the heinous act, locals are urging the authorities to ensure justice is serviced to the girl’s family and have the suspect eliminated from the community for his animosity.
