A Grade six boy from in Baringo Valley, Nakuru County, went missing under mysterious circumstances last Saturday, leaving his family in a state of distress.
James Gikonyo and Susan Wangoi, the parents of the missing boy, revealed that the child was in the company of his sisters who were engaged in cutting grass when the incident occurred.
According to the parents, the minor had allegedly made a vow to vanish and never return. While his sisters were occupied with their task, the boy ventured a short distance to collect milk jerricans but failed to make his way back to the family. Despite waiting anxiously, there was no sign of his return.
Described as a generally quiet individual by his parents, the disappearance has left the family and the community deeply concerned. Local residents, led by village elders, have reported the matter to the police station.
