A adolescent woman and her four-week-old newborn were killed in a home fire on Tuesday night, and police in Solai, Nakuru County, have opened an inquiry into the tragedy asreported by Citizen Digital.
Police head for Nakuru County, Peter Mwanzo, said that they were informed of the situation by the local sub-chief and discovered the house to be locked from the inside when they arrived at the site.
The two bodies were so badly burned that the cops had to break into the residence to find them."When we arrived at the spot, we discovered that the mud home had been shut from the inside after receiving information that it had taken fire in lower Solai from Solai Sub Chief. We learned that a young woman and her child were already dead and were burning inside "Mwanzo said
The police chief said, "We are aware that the young mother's early pregnancy and the delivery of the kid had an impact on her mental health and her ability to attend school.
Since then, the bodies of the two have been moved to the mortuary at Nakuru Level Five Hospital in anticipation of an autopsy.
