Relationship With Children

The doctor is said to have been very close with his children, namely 5 year old Dylan Gakara and three year old Karuana Gakara, both students at the Greensteds International Schools in Nakuru.

According to a local daily, the doctor loved his children unconditional and this is what makes their murders even more gruesome and incomprehensible since he was never the violent type.

Relationship With Patients

The doctor was a obstetrician gynaecologist who is said to have owned his own clinic besides working at another hospital in the county.

The patients and friends describe him as a jovial, empathetic and a guy who spared time for all and sundry while cracking jokes all the time.

His patients included a Kenyan celebrity who said that the doctor was professional and was even the one who correctly diagnosed a condition that many other doctors had failed to see.

Relationship With Wife

Doctor James Gakara is said to have been in a very close and healthy relationship with the wife and according to family and friends, he had never so much as argued with her.

She, Winnie Odhiambo, is still admitted at a local hospital in Nakuru under shock but is said to be in stable condition at this time according to the Gakara family spokesperson.
