The doctor is currently admitted at The Nakuru Level 5 Hospital where he is fighting for his his life under tight security from the Kenya Police.

His wife, Ms. Winnie Odhiambo, has finally broken her silence on the deaths of her two children namely 3-year-old Karuana Gakara and 5-year-old Dylan Gakara.

“My heart is shattered; I failed to protect you my loves. The person you trusted the most betrayed you my darlings, I promise to fight for justice for you; Go well my sweethearts.” Ms. Winnie Odhiambo spoke to one of the local dailies.

Ms. Winnie Odhiambo had travelled to Nairobi on the morning of the incident and it's alleged that she had had a disagreement with the husband on wanting to further her studies abroad.

These words by the wife of the gynaecologist, Dr. James Gakara come a few hours after the family of the doctor told police to keep an open mind in their investigations.

The family of the doctor say that they suspect foul play and that police should also probe that angle into the killing of the two children and alleged suicide of the father.
