A woman in Naivasha town killed her four children aged between eight and two years through poisoning.
The bodies of the four minors were found locked in their house near Naivasha High school on Saturday afternoon before police were called in.
The woman identified as Beatrice who has since been arrested, allegedly poisoned the children on Friday evening before fleeing to the neighbouring Kayole estate.
Emotions ran high as neighbours tried to come to terms with the bizarre incident with a brother to the suspect Jackson Kimani, saying the sister who worked with an NGO in Naivasha was laid off two months ago due to COVID-19.
Speaking on phone, Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru confirmed the incident adding that the 42 year old woman had been arrested in Kayole estate in Naivasha where she had been hiding.
