Tuesday, May 26, 2020 – A 25-year old man is fighting for his life at Kyuso Level 4 Hospital in Mwingi North Sub-County, Kitui County, after he killed his 58 year old mother and tried to commit suicide by taking poison.
Kimanzi Muthui is said to have hacked his mother with a machete after she allegedly declined to serve him dinner on Monday night.
According to Muumoni OCPD, Morris Guda, the suspect arrived home late on Monday and ordered his mother to serve him food, but she declined.
“A quarrel ensued between them.”
The suspect is said to have reached for a panga and slashed his helpless mother multiple times in different parts of her body.
“The victim died on the spot.”
“The young man, thereafter, ingested poison with the intention of killing himself.”
“However, he was rescued by neighbors and taken to Kyuso Kyuso Level 4 Hospital, where he is receiving treatment,” the police boss said.
The body of the deceased was taken to Kyuso Level 4 Hospital morgue as investigations into her death continue.
The suspect will face murder charges once he is discharged from hospital
