On arriving home, they told their grandmom what had happened. She immediately rushed to Sagini’s rescue to no avail.
“We tried to look for him but all our efforts proved futile. The following day, his elder brother who had gone to cut grass for the cows pounced on him in a banana plantation and he came home panting to inform us. We rushed to the scene and found the boy writhing in pain and his eyes gouged out.”Mrs Rael Mayieka.
Found in a pool of blood, Sagini was rushed to the Kisii Eye Hospital where he was stabilized awaiting an eye socket surgery.
“Both his eyes had been removed completely, and there are some injuries in the lids…so it looks like there was a sharp instrument like a knife that was used.”Dr Daniel Kiage.
A close relative initially arrested in connection with the attack has since been released for lack of sufficient evidence.
