20-year-old woman d*es after she was allegedly r*ped and brutalised by her employer six days after resumption

A 20-year-old Kenyan lady has died after she was allegedly raped by her employer six days after she started working for him.

Cynthia Nanjala succumbed to her injuries on June 2, 2022, two weeks after she was found lying naked and brutalised in a secluded spot in the Lunga Lunga slums in Nairobi. 
Cynthia told her sister that it was her employer who raped her but did not utter another word for almost two weeks before she died. 

In an interview with NationKenya published on Friday, June 10, Yvonne Mbone Muruli, fought back tears as she narrated her last moments with her sister while she was admitted at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH)
Ms Muruli, the second-born in a family of 10 children, said she regrets coming to Nairobi with her late sister, the lastborn, after the Easter festivities.

Ms Nanjala said came to the city to work as a house help, and the plan was the sisters would make money and use it to fund their ailing mother’s treatment. 
Their other sister, Esther Mbone, had informed them that she knew of someone who was looking for a domestic helper urgently and that the person had agreed to take her sister for the job.

Ms Nanjala, who dropped out of school in Class 7 due to life’s pressures, packed her bags and left for Nairobi. She stayed at Ms Muruli’s house in Kangemi for a few days before leaving for Ms Mbone’s home in Kawangware. She stayed there for a few weeks before reporting to work in Embakasi in May.

"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,” Ms Muruli said, adding that her mother is yet to get a diagnosis, two years on, because of lack of funds.
