Githurai residents were this morning treated to horror scene after a young man killed hid won mum and left his brother with serious injuries
Police in Kiambu County have launched a hunt for a 24-year-old man who allegedly killed his mother and injured his twin brother on Tuesday morning.
Mary Wanja, 47, died after she was stabbed twice – in the neck and arm. The incident happened at 3am in Githurai, where the twin brothers live.
Ruiru DCI officer Justus Ombati told The Standard that Wanja had travelled from Murang’a to Githurai to visit her twin sons, when a dispute arose between her and one of the children.
According to the DCI officer, Erick also stabbed his twin brother, Derick Kamau, in the abdomen when Derick attempted to shield their mother from the attacks by the suspect.
Derick is receiving treatment at St. Francis Community Hospital in Kasarani.
Ombati says preliminary investigations indicate the suspect “has mental problems”.
