Slain children’s estate calls for counselling

The residents of Milimani Apartments, where two minors were allegedly murdered by their medic father, are organizing for psycho-social support for the children in the Estate to assist them cope with the sudden demise of their playmates.

Prof. Nzula Kita, a lecture at Egerton University and a resident at the Apartments noted that as the adults try to cope with the unusual circumstances, there is need to consider the impact of the incident on the Estate kids and organize for psycho-social support for them.

Speaking at the Estate, today, Kita said the children knew the murdered children as playmates, schoolmates and they have seen the wide media coverage of the incident.

“This is the major reason they require a session with an expert, to enable them ask questions that may be bothering them and come to terms with the unfortunate incident,” she noted.

Last Saturday, a consultant gynecologist, who owns a private hospital at Section 58, was found unconscious in his house at the Apartments and his two children aged three and five years dead in their rooms.

The County Police Commandant, Beatrice Kiraguri, said there was a high possibility that the medic injected the children with insulin and a sharp knife found next to the minors, was a confirmation that he was determined to end their lives.

Since the shocking weekend incident, the residents of Nakuru town have been mulling over what might have triggered such an unfortunate incident, with some claiming that the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and economic hardships were getting a toll on people.
