Kenyans online posted messages of condolences to politician Isaac Mwaura after he revealed the loss of his two children in a lengthy emotional post on Facebook.

The former nominated MP had earlier this year welcomed triplets together with his wife Mukami.

A happy Mwaura broke the news of being the father of two boys and a girl on social media, sharing pictures of him and wife.

However, he lost a boy and a girl during the Jubilee Party nominations but kept the news under wraps.

“I went ahead to vie for Ruiru parliamentary seat, suffered political violence and eventually lost the election. Some people thought that I was down and out. Others even celebrated!”

“Mukami and I even lost two of our triplets (a boy and a girl) and we were left with only one son and a hospital bill of 11.2 million to clear not forgetting that we were in the middle of party primary campaigns. It was really tough but we kept the faith.”

Here are some of the reactions.
