Drama as woman strangles and buries her days old child in unbelievable circumstances

A young woman in Kopiyo village, Rachuonyo East sub county proceeded to bury her barely one year old child, just after strangling the toddler.

The woman is reported to have conceived out of wedlock as her husband was away for over an year on work in Kisumu. He alleged that he had not been intimate with his wife for over two years. Therefore on catching wind of an expectant wife back home, he made threats to his wife in the case that the news were factual.

Hence the troubled woman on Monday proceeded to carry out the hideous act and buried the young kid near her house in her farm.

Close relatives on suspicion forced her into confession and proceeded to retrieve the body.

The woman was quick to flee to her maternal home with her remaining kids, but later abandoned them there and went into hiding after she realised the police were after her. A manhunt has since been launched by the police for the woman.
