Nduku who planned on killing her children before committing suicide, reportedly fed her two children with pesticides used for spraying on livestock.

Speaking to newsmen, the father of the woman, Nicodemus Mwikya said;

“My daughter gave birth to the firstborn and left for 4yrs without a trace, She came back with the second born, now the deceased, and again went away for another four years. Thinking she had gotten lost, she re-appeared with the third born who’s now one-year-old.

“Nobody knew she had a relationship with her uncle until the day it was discovered that she was visiting him in his house. Mbithi is my younger brother and that’s why we couldn’t approve the relationship,” the father said.

He added that his daughter attempted suicide after her mother said she doesn’t want to see her because of the relationship with the uncle.

Speaking, the mother Teresia Mwikya, who described the daughter and uncle’s relationship as shameful, queried;

“I said that marriage can’t work because of their blood relationship. Where in our society have you seen an uncle marry his niece?”

Machakos sub-county head of DCI Rhodah Kanyi, said the department is hunting down for the said uncle to face charges of incest.

Meanwhile, the Machakos children department has rescued the youngest child who has been taken to a rescue centre while the other, aged six years is still recuperating at Machakos Level Five Referral Hospital.
