Githinji noted that the news about the doctor committing murder was shocking and the death of the two minors was unfortunate.
As she spoke about the incident, Githinji noted that she regrets not asking the doctor about his well-being when she had the chance to.

Following the incident, Githinji urged Kenyans to always check on their friends, more so, those who seem brave and undisturbed.
The doctor is said to have killed his two children, age three and five, on Saturday night. According to preliminary investigations, the suspect killed the minors by injecting them with a yet-to-be-established drug.
The doctor is currently recovering at Nakuru Level Five Hospital while the bodies of the children have been taken to the hospital’s morgue awaiting an autopsy exam.
