Residents of Kabolelo village in Tindiret Nandi county are still in shock after bodies of two children aged six and eleven were on Thursday found dumped in a bit latrine.

According to the villagers, the two children are suspected to have been killed by their mother before disposing of their bodies in the latrine. It is not yet clear what came of the single mother who decided to end the lives of her children immaturely.

Genesis of insecurity: On August 09, 2013, a manager Dickson Birech was shot dead at Kapchorua Tea Company in Nandi Hills, Nandi County. Since then incidents of robberies and killings have been on the rise. Residents are now calling on the national and county governments to step in and and provide a lasting solution to rising insecurity which they say is threatening investment prospects in the county.

Police have already started investigations into the matter with the mother who is yet to be identified already in police custody helping with the investigations.

This is not the first time Tindiret in Nandi county is hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons. Earlier this year, a 17-year-old minor from Kaptumek village, Tinderet Sub County in Nandi County was reported to have been defiled and impregnated by her father.

The standard seven dropout whose mother passed on in 2001 was left with her father who took advantage of her innocence. She claimed that local leaders including area Sub Chief who was supposed to help had ignored her plight.

This comes at a time the leaders from the North Rift region are crying foul over the rising number of insecurity cases in the region. The leaders lead by Kipchumba Murkomen and Oscar Sudi have blamed the government for allegedly eating their own people.

A research report released on April on placed the North Rift town of Eldoret as the worst crime hotspot in the country with the highest number of murder and crime cases in Kenya.

Even as this happens, three Firearms and several ammunitions that were recently stolen from Administration Police Camp in Nandi South while the officers were watching UEFA champions league match, were this month recovered in Langas Eldoret following an intelligence-based operation led by DCI detectives.
