A 16-year old girl was hacked to death by her ex-boyfriend with a machete on her way to school in Kenya.
“We are saddened by the incident and appeal to the police to arrest the culprit, who is still at large,” said Mr Ayoo.
The boy’s parents told the Nation that he had informed them that he would disappear but did not give any reasons for the planned action.

Ms Akinyi said she had warned her sister about the young man and she called off the relationship.
“I was shocked to discover that the killer was a young boy who was previously in a relationship with my sister,” said Ms Akinyi.
Area police boss Reuben Muli said they had launched a search for the suspect.
She added: “Before reaching the scene, a neighbour and my mother-in-law also called over what had befallen my sister.”
It was gathered from witnesses that a quarrel had ensued between suspect and the deceased over a love affair turned sour.
The suspect, a Class Eight dropout, is said to have monitored the girl for some time on her way to school before finally pouncing on her. He cut her in the head with a panga.
According to reports, the victim, a form three student at Bishop Okoth Miranga Secondary School was ambushed by the suspect at about 6 a.m.
The boy refused to accept the girl’s decision.
The girl, she said, told the boy that she was born again and could not continue with their affair.
Daily Nation reports:
Ms Emily Akinyi said: “I received a phone call from a man asking me if my sister had left for school. When I told him that she had already gone, he told me to immediately rush to a place called Arina since something tragic had happened.”
Her uncle, Mr Jacob Ayoo, asked the police to investigate the case and bring the culprit to book.
It was through the girl’s death that they learnt of their son’s intention.
Ms Akinyi described her sister as having been an average performer, disciplined and polite.
