An eight-year-old boy suffocated to death after his mother allegedly left him in a car and went to have sex with her lover in a lodging facility in Mateka Market in Bungoma.
According to South Bukusu location chief, Julius Barasa, Christine Nekesa, 37, left her son, Enos Simiyu, with three bottles of soda as she went to have fun with her lover, namely Juby Nganga aged 60.
It is believed Simiyu suffocated as the doors and windows of the car were all locked.
The couple reportedly got intimate for hours before Nekesa returned to where she had parked her car and discovered that her son had died.
Confirming the incident, Bumula OCPD, Julius Muthini, said the couple was arrested and taken to Bumula Police Station before being transferred to Bungoma Police Station as investigation continues.
