BY FAITH MUTETE – Two students who went missing after they were sent home after reporting to school late from August holiday on September 4 were found in Korogocho slums.
The two are students at Chief Mbogori Girls High School in Tharaka Nithi county.
Michelle Wanjiru and Caroline Muteti Munou, both 15, said they feared being punished by their parents so they decided to exile themselves for good.
The two, who were found in good health, claimed they used to sleep under old cars and kiosks while often changing their locations.
A Good Samaritan, Susan Hogo who found them said she saw one of the girls who she identified from the news, and decided to approach her.
”I saw Michelle and I decided to approach her and told her that she looked like a girl who was in the media reported missing… First, she denied and when I insisted she caved in,” said Ms Hogo.
