Police have arrested a twenty three year old man suspected of killing his mother and seven year old brother on the evening of Wednesday, April, 27, 2022 in Kamulu area of Ruai.
The suspected identified as David Kimani Kabiru is said to have used a knife to kill the two before hitting them with a stone.
The mentally challenged student also injured a neighbour who tried to rescue the victims and is recuperating in hospital.
Kabiru, who is currently under police custody, will undergo a mental check-up before being arraigned.
When I came I found he had killed his Mother Peninah Njoki Kabiru and brother Ian Kabiru on inquiry he did not deny and told me he did not know why he did the heinous act,” a neighbour intimated.
Georgina, their househelp, escaped narrowly after she curiously attempted to find out what was happening in the house.
“I heard people crying in the house and went to find out what was happening. I found David holding a knife and told me I was next. I ran away immediately,” she narrated.
Doctors had recommended David to be admitted to Mathare mental hospital but refused and was instead put on medication which he declined as well.
Elsewhere, two consignments of bhang were intercepted yesterday morning by Coast Guard officers, following a dramatic chase in the Indian Ocean.
