Man Kills Two Children Then Commits Suicide.

Nyakeogiro village in Kisii County residents is yet to come to terms with a 44-year-old man who allegedly killed his two children before committing suicide.

The father of three is said to have quarreled with his wife, Naomi Kerubo, over Sh150.

Kerubo said her husband got angry when she refused to hand over all the money she had earned from doing some menial jobs. She said she handed him Sh850 and kept the rest.

According to Kerubu, her husband descended on her with kicks and blows, forcing her to seek refuge in a nearby home for the night.

“I was shocked when I was informed on Sunday as I headed home that my husband and two children had been found dead in our house that morning with the children lying in a pool of blood while their father appeared to have committed suicide,” said Kerubo.

The distraught woman said they had been having frequent squabbles with her husband. She had on several occasions sought refuge at her rural home and involved her relatives and neighbours in trying to sort out their differences.

Kisii County police commander Francis Kooli told The Standard that the man reportedly hacked to death his seven-year-old son George Makori and five-year-old daughter Kayu Makori and later hanged himself.

“The bodies of the two children had deep wounds on their necks, while that of their father was found with a wire on the neck with a bloody machete lying next to the bodies. Blood was splattered all over the room with no suicide note found at the scene,” said Kooli.

The police boss said the bodies of the three were taken to the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary for postmortem.

Police have launched investigations into the incident that has left residents of Nyakeogiro village reeling in shock.
