Serial Rapist With Over 100 Victims Gives One Demand to Court; Emmy Kosgei’s Brother Jailed Over Death of 6-year-old boy & Senators Threaten to Defy Uhuru and Raila on BBI Bill

Good morning,

How scary is it when things you only used to see in movies start happening in real life?

So yesterday, three bodies of four men who disappeared mysteriously earlier in the month were found dumped in Thika and Murang’a, bringing speculations of what might have happened to them to an end.

One was found in a morgue, while two were found dumped in a river, their bodies stuffed and wrapped in gunias.

It is not unusual for murders to be reported in Kenya, but when people start getting murdered in groups, it becomes a cause for alarm.

Social media rumours have it that the ill-fated men were involved in criminal activities and might have suffered a deal gone bad, or fallen into the hands of rogue police officers.

Whichever the case, what happened to the value of human life, ‘innocent until proven guilty’, and the fear of God as the only one who should take away life?

We need to reevaluate ourselves and our values as a society and put an end to this murder madness that has become the order of the day in the country.

Here are the stories making headlines on Opera News today:
