Thursday, May 14, 2020 – A 33-year old woman committed suicide on Wednesday night in Komarock estate, after poisoning her two children.
The two children, a boy aged 7 years old and a 3 year old girl, were rescued by her neighbours and rushed to Komarock Modern Hospital.
The kids are in critical condition and it is not clear which poison their mother administered to them.
The woman identified as Jane Mwende Nguthu, hanged herself with an iron box cable after the poison she ingested failed to kill her.
According to a police report, the lady left a suicide note in her bedroom saying that she was tired of being mistreated by her husband.
Her husband told the police that they had an argument and hadn’t talked to each other for almost a day.
However, the husband said it did not occur to him that his wife would resort to such extreme measures.
