Nanny charged for allegedly killing employer’s 2-year-old child, dumping body in septic tank

Five key suspects allegedly linked to the murder of a two-year-old boy in Total estate on the outskirts of Narok town were on Thursday arraigned in court.

Rop Tinkoi Kudate was allegedly killed and his body dumped in a septic tank near his home last Saturday.

It is alleged that Pauline Nanjala, who worked at the home as a domestic worker, together with Selinah Sintamei were aware of the murder; however, they only confessed after intense interrogations were conducted.

During the court proceedings, Duncan Ondimu from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) added that Nanjala, who is a key suspect, has been on police radar following her past record associated with murders where she allegedly stabbed her employer to death in 2014.

In giving directions, Magistrate Phylis Shinyanda said there were gaps in the investigation and directed that the suspects be released on Ksh.300,000 bond with a surety of the same amount.

“No evidence tabled indicates that the accused went into hiding, therefore not warranting them to be denied bail pending investigations,” ruled the magistrate.

Officers from the homicide investigation department called on Kenyans to present themselves at the Narok Police Station and identify the 'killer maid' suspected to have been behind other deaths in various parts of the country.

The family of the late Roy Tinkoi is calling for thorough investigations to establish the cause of the murder.

Jonathan Kudate, the deceased’s uncle, said: “Tunaomba serikali…sio kushika tu, tunataka haki itendeke, mbona waliuwa malaika ya Mungu?”

The case will come up for mention on November 28 this year.
