A 25-year-old man from Nyamira County was Thursday, August 18 lynched by an angry mob for murdering his two children before trying to escape.
Moses Bogesi reportedly slit open the throats of his children aged 3 and 5 before calling his wife to come and pick the bodies.
“He called his wife to come pick the children. On arrival, she found the two butchered and the man planning to escape,” said an angry neighbour.
According to the residents, they heard the woman screaming and when they rushed at the scene, they found the children brutally butchered with one lying on the table and another by the door.
Bogesi’s action attracted the wrath of the villagers who hunted him down while on an escape before torching him.
It is alleged that the couple had a domestic disagreement previously that made the woman run away with the children only for the man to track her down.
Nyamira OCPD, Erick Ongare, said it pains to see a parent butcher his children after giving birth.
