Narok woman arrested for burning her two boys with hot panga over Githeri



Police in Narok Town are holding a 29-year-old woman who burnt her two children with a hot panga because of a plate of ‘githeri’.

The minors (both boys) aged 14 and 9 were rescued by a good Samaritans at their home in Nairegie Enkare-Narok East Sub-County who reported to the police station before taking the minors to the children office.

The minor’s father Timothy Ndung’u said he was out in the field where he works as a casual labourer when he was called by his neighbours.

“I had left the children under the care of their mother, Rose Nyambura, who is also a casual labourer, but was shocked to receive news from my neighbours that she was burning my children with a hot panga. I rushed home immediately only to find that the children had been rescued by the police,” said Ndung’u.

Ndung’u, however, said they had lived with her wife peacefully since the year 2004 when they got married and blessed with five children.

“I have never seen my wife behave like this before. We have always been in a good relationship and she has been taking good care of our children,” he added.

Narok Children Social Worker, Elizabeth Kasura said the children will be taken to Narok Referral Hospital where they will receive treatment before being taken to children’s home.

She called on parents to take their parental responsibility of caring for their children by providing them with enough quality food, clothing and good shelter.

“You do not have to suffer as a parent, approach the children office if you cannot afford to raise your children and we will help you in guiding you on how you can support them,” said Kasura adding that parental love is important to children.
