City mum fed up with ‘cheating husband’ kills children, commits suicide – VIDEO

Police in Nairobi are investigating the death of a woman and her two children whose bodies were found in their one-roomed house in Kijiji village, Donholm Estate.

The woman, 26 year-old Esther Kanini is believed to have killed her two children before killing herself, in what neighbours claim could be frustration over her husband’s alleged infidelity.

The deceased and her kids are said to have consumed poison before hastening the death by hanging using clothing material.


The woman also reportedly left a note informing her husband that he was now free to fully enjoy his relationship with a ‘mpango wa kando’. She identified her love rival as Mueni.

The distraught husband, Victor Muthoka, could not fight back tears and openly wept at the sight of his young family being carried into the back of a police vehicle, heading for the mortuary.

Neighbours described the couple as quiet and reserved who never engaged much.

Scene of crime officers combed through the house for evidence of what happened before taking the bodies away.
