A mother has shocked many after she allegedly beaten her own daughter causing her demise.
The woman from Trans Nzoia County is said to have used a wooden cooking stick to beat her own Grade 2 daughter resulting to her sudden death.
The Grade 2 daughter who is a pupil at Kiminini Primary School is said to have defied her own mother's orders to perform house chores. The mother to the daughter acted in a manner to punish her as a way of instilling discipline but unfortunately applied excess force while punishing the minor.
The cruel mother used a wooden cooking stick popularly known in Swahili as 'Mwiko' to severely beat her own daughter until she ran away from home. The minor went seeking refuge at the local chief's camp but the mother pursued her and brought her back home where she slept overnight.
Sadly, both the mother and the neighbors woke up to find the dead body of the Grade 2 daughter who died overnight after she succumbed to the severe beating she had received from her mother the previous night.
The mother has since then been arrested and she is currently being held at the local police station waiting to be arraigned in court on Monday.
This incident comes barely a day after a man in Meru used a wooden cooking stick to kill his helpless disabled wife accusing her of infecting him with HIV/AIDS.
