According to her, “I was working when the boys entered the house. I wanted to shout and one of them wanted to stab me. ‘Another one said I was still a small girl; they tried to rape me but I said no. .
I heard a noise but I didn’t see what they were doing. ‘Then, they put a stone on my hand and asked me to say I kill mama.” Harrison, the son of the deceased, however, express surprise that his mother was killed in such a brutal manner.
