Witnessing the post-mortem on their daughter at the Rachuonyo level four hospital last week haunts them.

KILLERS EXPOSED

“This is too much for us to bear. Why did they have to slaughter her like that? I want to know why Sharon was killed,” says Sharon's mother, Ms Melida Auma.

“It is my humble request to President Uhuru to look into this issue so that the truth is known,” said Ms Auma.

“It has been hard for us. Very hard indeed. We have gone through a lot since Sharon disappeared. We want this matter put to rest. We want peace but this will be possible only after her killers are exposed and charged,” said the mother of four.

She had hoped her daughter, a second year medical records and information student at Rongo University, would complete her course, join the health sector and help her siblings, the last of whom is a girl in Standard Five.
