Nakuru doctor kills his two children aged 3 and 5, attempts suicide



Police in Nakuru are investigating an incident in which a doctor is accused of killing his two children, aged three and five, on Saturday night.
Afterward, the doctor unsuccessfully attempted suicide, area police commander Beatrice Kiraguri told The Standard.
Kiraguri said preliminary investigations indicate the doctor injected the children with a yet-to-be-established drug, leading to their death.
“The scene indicates some drugs were used on the children and on himself. A postmortem shall be conducted to establish what type of drug it was,” Kiraguri added.
The man is recuperating at the Nakuru Level Five Hospital while the bodies of the children were taken to the hospital’s morgue.
He is said to have confessed to killing the children.
Police say he is yet to give more information about what happened.
At the time of the incident, the man’s wife was not at home.
?“We have communicated with the doctor’s wife, who says she was in Nairobi [at the time of the incident]. We shall establish what could have sparked her husband’s actions,” Kiraguri said.
“The police arrived at the scene and broke into the house. They found two children dead and their father, a doctor, unconscious,” Kiraguri said.
Neighbours who alerted the police said the man had had a disagreement with his wife before the incident.
The nature of the fallout was is still unclear.
