Kisii County hits the news headlines again as a middle-aged man allegedly kills his two daughters. Kipkulei kipkemboi, Nyamache’s OCPD has confirmed the incident and added that the man, having killed his two daughters, hid their bodies on their farm.
The two bodies have been rushed to a mortuary in Nyamache hospital for further inspection and possibly an autopsy, a procedure performed on a body to know the cause of death. This will further help the police in their investigations on the nature of their deaths and the conditions around which they died. However, photographs of the scene reveal deep cuts on their dead, indicating that he may have used a sharp object like a machete to make the incisions.
Villagers are now worried and concerned about such incidences and would like the government to take more action on such cases to prevent their further occurrence. The cause of his actions is still not clear. Interviews with some of the villagers reveal that he has been living with a mental health condition for over 5 years. It is yet to be clear why he was left alone with the children in such a state and why no one had ever offered to take care of them.
In response, our media team advises the government to take such concerns seriously and not only address the problem at hand but also come up with measure to prevent such occurrences again. Violence against children in the county is growing, this following the baby Sagini incident. As authorities look into this, we urge all citizens to stay calm and actively collaborate with the police in aiding such investigations. We also urge anyone with any helpful information to share it soon enough before such incidents are reported.
Stay safe, keep those around you safe, make Kenya safe!
