Three children from Maara District in Meru County have been rescued from their mother, 35, who fed them on human waste.
Meru South Children’s officer, Eunice Njuguna, said the kids aged 8, 4 and 1 have been medically treated and are now in safe custody.
Ms Njuguna says the children’s mother could be of unsound mind.
The mother-of-three has been admitted to hospital for mental health treatment.
Ms Njuguna says once the woman completes her treatment, the children, who are currently being taken care of in a children’s home, will be handed back to her.
