A middle aged woman is being held by police in Homa Bay after she poisoned her children and a step daughter leading to the death of a six year old girl.
Police reports indicate that the woman had had a quarrel with the girl’s mother which ended badly. In the evening she prepared a meal for her family including her two children and spiked it with poison, she also took part of the food.
The six year old whose food had most of the poison died instantly and the eldest daughter of the woman raised alarm; neighbors rushed to the home and rescued the children who are still recuperating at Rachuonyo District Hospital.
