7-month-old foetus found floating in Kericho river

A seven-month old foetus was found floating along Kapetele River in Sosiot village, Kericho County over the weekend. Kapsogut Chief Elijah Korir said the foetus, which was found wrapped in a plastic bag, was discovered by boys who were swimming in the river. The area boss noted that the boys initially mistook the foetus for a dead cat and only realized what it was when they opened the bag and legs popped out. They raised the alarm and members of the public responded, later reporting the incident at Liten Police Station. Officers rushed to the scene and took the body to Kapkatet District Hospital mortuary. Chief Korir said police are following crucial leads which may lead to the arrest of suspects behind the act. They are however appealing to anyone with information on the incident to report to them.
