Kenya: Girl Who Went Missing From Protective Custody Found

Nairobi — A 14-year-old-girl who went missing from protective custody has been found.

According to the Witness Protection Agency, the girl was expected to testify against a police officer who allegedly defiled her in a cell at the Murang'a Police Station last year in October.

She went missing on December 9 after taking the evening meal from a children's home in the city.

The girl had been arrested in connection with the missing property of a Murang'a University student when she was allegedly defiled in a police cell.

When the girl disappeared from the safe house in December, her mother raised the alarm, complaining that the Government did not seem to be concerned about her daughter's safety.
