The children’s department in Makueni County is conducting investigations to establish what led to the abandonment of two children in a market in Matheani village, Kithuki location in Kathonzweni Sub County last Sunday.
Consequently, the children have been placed under the care of Christine Nthenya Kimilu who found them on Sunday as she went to church.
Speaking to KNA in his Wote office Monday, the area Sub-county children’s officer Rasto Omollo said the two children, a boy aged 2 and girl 3 years, were allegedly abandoned by their maternal grandmother after their father allegedly took them to her place at Itangini.
“The children will be taken care of by Kimilu who happens to be their aunt and a sister to the father, until a lasting solution is found,” said Omollo.
