Nairobi, Kenya – (African Boulevard News) – The autopsies on the 10 children, who were allegedly killed by members of the doomsday cult in Kenya, have begun. The bodies were exhumed this week, and reports show that the children were starved to death, and in some cases, asphyxiated.
According to sources, the cult was led by a self-proclaimed prophet who claimed to have been given divine instruction to cleanse the world of sinners. The cult had set up camp in a remote area of Kenya, where they isolated themselves from the rest of society.
The authorities were only made aware of the cult when a child managed to escape and reported the atrocities to the police. The investigation led to the discovery of the 10 bodies buried in shallow graves.
The autopsies will help in the investigation of the cult members. It is believed that they targeted children as they were seen as “pure” and could be easily brainwashed into following the cult’s beliefs.
“This is a tragic and heinous act of violence,” said Mary Wambui, a child rights activist. “It is heartbreaking to know that these innocent children suffered such a terrible fate.”
The investigation into the cult and its members is ongoing, but the autopsies will provide crucial evidence in identifying the cause of death and confirming the involvement of the cult members.
“The outcome of these autopsies will help bring justice to the innocent victims and their families, and ensure that those responsible for such a heinous act are held accountable,” said John Kariuki, a legal expert.
The case has shocked the nation, and many are calling for stricter laws against cults. “It is important that we have measures in place to prevent such groups from forming and causing harm to innocent people,” said Esther Nyambura, a member of the Kenyan parliament.
The autopsies are expected to be completed soon, and the investigation is ongoing. The families of the victims are still grappling with the loss of their children, and the nation mourns with them.
“The loss of these innocent children is a tragedy that will never be forgotten,” said President Uhuru Kenyatta. “We will do everything in our power to ensure that justice is served.”
