Cynthia Nanjala, a 20-year-old woman, died after being allegedly raped by her employer six days after starting work for him.

The victim, a Kenyan, died on June 2, 2022, two weeks after she was found naked and brutalized in a hidden location in Nairobi’s Lunga Lunga slums.

She is claimed to have confessed to her sister that her employer had raped her, but she remained silent for over two weeks before dying.

In an interview with NationKenya, the deceased’s sister, Yvonne Mbone Muruli, fought back tears as she described her last moments with Cynthia while she was hospitalized to Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).

Ms Muruli, the second of ten children, expressed regret for traveling to Nairobi with her late sister, the lastborn, during the Easter celebrations.

She explained that they traveled to the city to work as home helpers in order to earn money to help their sick mother.

Another sister of the deceased, Esther Mbone, allegedly informed them that she knew of someone who needed a domestic assistance immediately and that the individual had agreed to hire her sister.

Ms Nanjala, who had dropped out of school in Class 7 due to family obligations, packed her belongings and flew to Nairobi. She stayed for a few days at Ms Muruli’s house in Kangemi before heading to Ms Mbone’s residence in Kawangware. She spent a few weeks there before returning to work in Embakasi in May.

Muruli said :

We were more than happy. Our mother has been very sick. Her body has swollen and we have never had enough money to fund her treatment. We knew that whatever amount Nanjala would add would go a long way to help with finding her proper treatment

Cynthia allegedly told Muruli about the incident that brought her to the hospital, according to Muruli.

It is my employer who raped me. He covered me up and did it! I am sure he did it. Even the other house help knows that it happened. I have not told anyone but you: she said

The family began to suspect anything was amiss at this point. Cynthia’s sisters had not been informed of her disappearance by her employer.

Muruli reported the incident to the Embakasi Police Station on May 20, using OB number 110/20/5/2022. Ms Nanjala was asked to record a statement, but she was told that no action would be taken unless she improved and was able to share her story with the police.

She added;

The employers said they had not seen Nanjala for a number of days. They said she left the house one day at around 7pm to take clothes from the drying line and they had seen her since

Cynthia died at the KNH on June 2nd. A post-mortem examination of her body proved inconclusive, with part of the report stating that samples of her spinal cord and brain had been collected for further toxicological testing.

Her body remains at the KNH mortuary because her family has not paid a hospital bill totaling Sh112,000, which they claim they are unable to pay.

Our mother is sick, so sick that she can barely stand. She keeps asking me if we can really get that money so that we can bury my sister at home, and I tell her I do not know. We are helpless. I call on willing people to help us pay that bill and bury our sister : muruli also said

The event was confirmed by the Embakasi sub-county Police Commander, who informed the Nation that they were waiting for a conclusive post-mortem report before proceeding.
