Police at Njambini police station in Kinangop, Nyandarua county, have seized a class three pupil after he slaughtered an 11 year-old girl who reportedly turned down his sexual advances.
The teenager, 13, stabbed the minor identified as Mary Nduta seven times using a sharp knife before reporting himself to the police.
It is alleged that the families of the two pupils are neighbours and their parents had good relationship. The victim was in class two while her attacker is in class three (they started school late) and both school at Githinji primary school.
