Police in Kisumu have arrested a man who on Saturday, August 20, allegedly murdered his mother before setting her body on fire.
Ms Roselyn Nyawanda who is the Deputy Principal Migingo Girls High School was found dead inside her house at the institution’s teachers’ quarter.
“The boy who is a drug addict ended the life of his mother and we did not know until on Sunday when one of the teachers went to check on her in the house,” said one of the workers in the school.
Police say that the suspect is mentally unstable and a drug addict who has been causing chaos at their home.
According to them, the man committed the murder and locked himself inside the house where he stayed with the body for more than 20 hours.
“Neighbors did not hear the commotion in the house because it was raining heavily, the body was found inside the bathroom of the house burnt,” an officer who spoke in confidence as he is not authorised to address the media said.
The officer further said that the eldest son had tried to call the mother but could not get her and decided to engage a neighbor to reach Ms Nyawanda out.
The son then decided to go and see the mother and when he arrived at the house he did not believe his eyes after he saw the mother lying down dead.
This comes barely hours after a man ended his life by setting himself on fire after meeting up with his ex-wife in Njiru, Nairobi County.
Mr Dennis Musyoka, 34, managed to convince his ex-wife Ms Elizabeth Munyalo to bring their daughter so that he could interact with her only to end up stabbing her before setting a car they were in ablaze.

The lady managed to escape from the motor vehicle; make a Honda Vezel after the suspect stabbed her four times on the left side of the neck.
Shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday in Njiru Estate, a Honda Vezel pulled within Nasra Estate where the two ex-lovers had agreed to meet-up and the man joined the mother and daughter inside the vehicle which was black in color while carrying a bag.
“He removed a knife immediately he boarded the motor vehicle and stabbed the lady four times on the left side of the neck. The lady managed to jump out of the vehicle and was rescued by good Samaritans,” a police report seen by Nation.Africa read in part.
Once the woman was out of the vehicle, the deceased went ahead and set the vehicle on fire while the minor identified as K.M and aged two and a half years was still inside.
Investigations by detectives attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Kayole Sub-County found out that the duo had separated for some time over continuous domestic issues.
