Jackson Kimani, the brother to the suspected killer of her own children worked with an NGO but because of COVID-19, she was laid off work about two months ago. As a result, he added that since she could not afford to feed her four children, it left her stressed. Nevertheless, they never knew it could get to a stage like this-killing own four children.

Following the act, she had commented on social media-Family WhatsApp, which caught the attention of the family that something was not right. "We knew something was amiss due to some comments she had posted on social media and on coming to enquire we found that she had killed the four children," the brother indicated.


As for neighbors, they said they became suspicious when the house remained locked and children did not come out to play.  "The minors were very jovial and we are trying to come to terms with their death and what could have driven this woman to commit such an incident," Andrew Opiyo, a neighbor said.
