This morning, a curious case that has been brought to our attention by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Social Media Page has highlighted a plight of a mother who has just lost her son.
It's alleged that she came home from work together with her new husband only to find her three year old child missing.
Upon inquiry from neighbors as to the whereabouts of the young kid, they realized that a man who fit the description of her former husband had taken her aboard a motorbike earlier on.
Rushing to the slums of Mukuru Kwa Njenga and breaking down his house, they found the lifeless body of the little boy and his father lying in the dimly lit house.
On the table was a suicide not explaining why the man had committed the heinous act and a 500 shilling note that he instructed the woman to buy airtime to inform all his relatives of the act.
