Oranga Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga has called on Kenya Police Service to address the rising cases of child killings and disappearances.

Raila said it was the work of the police to ensure all children, girls, and women are safe.

"Police must assure Kenyans that an individual will not pluck and kill two, four or five children or girls before the ring is detected and crushed," he said.

Raila also took a swipe at the Judiciary accusing it of taking too long to send the culprits to prison.

"The Judiciary must also assure Kenyans that justice will come swiftly and fairly where lives have been senselessly lost. Justice is taking too long to come if it ever does for the victims," Raila stated.

He added: "The delays only prolong the pain and make beasts bolder. Now more than ever, this country needs assurance from these two public institutions that are critical to ending the madness."
