A group of women from Nairobi’s Satelite area are demanding justice following the brutal murder of their colleague by an unknown person.
Twenty two year old Elizabeth Njoki a Commercial Sex Worker was reportedly killed by her client who allegedly tortured her before killing her.
Caro Maina Njoki’s colleague says Njoki was last spotted last week on Friday in Hurlingham area at around 5 am speaking to a client who was in a car.
“Njoki is a very talkative person and when we did not hear from her for two days, we suspected that something wrong happened,” said Maina.
She says it is after the client picked her that she went missing only to be found dead five days later at the Kenyatta National Hospital Mortuary.
“We first of all went to her house in Satelite but we did not find her, then we lodged a complaint at the Kilimani Police Station before proceeding to mortuaries only to find her at the KNH Mortuary on Thursday,” said Maina.
Maina says Njoki’s body had strangulation marks, her face was swollen and had suffered deep cuts on her body.
“She looked like she struggled with her assailant before she was finally killed,” she stated.
She is appealing for justice for Njoki saying many girls have fallen victims of the brutal murders.
“This can happen to any girl. Commercial sex workers are not the only vulnerable people, so justice must be done,” she said.
