The family of a Nakuru doctor suspected of killing his two children and later attempting suicide on Saturday evening has called for thorough investigations into the matter.
Yesterday, the family expressed doubt that Dr James Gakara took the lives of his children aged five and three.picture courtesy. Family, DCI officers, and a pathologist at Nakuru mortuary.

“As a family, we still don’t believe that my brother killed his children and tried to take his own life. The story being advanced by authorities does not add up,” said Nyaguthii.
Gakara was on Saturday night found lying unconscious in his bed and his two children dead in a separate bedroom in the house in the posh Milimani Estate.
Nakuru County Police Commander Beatrice Kiraguri said the officers found items that they suspect the medic could have been used to administer to his children and himself either orally or through injection.
Some of Gakara’s friends had claimed that the couple had differed with his wife, who also works at one of the county public hospitals, over her intentions to pursue further studies.
However, Nyaguthii has dismissed the claims saying Gakara greatly supported his wife’s plans to advance her education.
“My brother has been catering for his wife’s education all through to assist him in running his hospital. His wife advancing his education had my brother’s support. That could not have enraged him,” said Nyaguthii.
