Police in Nakuru have launched an investigation into an incident in which a doctor allegedly killed his two children by injecting them with insulin and tried to commit suicide after a domestic brawl in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

According to sources, the doctor who owns two private facilities at Kabachia and Tharmol Plaza in Nakuru was against his wife’s decision to go abroad for further studies.

In what is seen as a well-calculated mission, he sent his mother some unusual cash then switched off his phone and he had released his house help a week ago to western.

It is said that the man injected the children with insulin before turning to self but the effect was slow on him and he was rescued and taken to hospital under police escort.

Confirming the incident, Nakuru county Police Commander Beatrice Kiraguri said police were alerted at around 9.30 pm on Saturday that there was a suspected fishy thing in one of the houses Milimani Apartments.

The officers visited and broke into the house only to find the doctor lying unconscious on the bed with his two children dead in the same room.

The doctor was rushed to hospital and in the morning when he came back to his senses admitted that he had used the drugs to kill his children- a boy,5, and a girl,3.

“Our officers visited the area, broke into the house and found the doctor lying unconscious on a bed with his two children dead in the same room,” said Kiraguri.

At the time of the incident, the wife of the doctor had travelled to Nairobi.

The bodies were taken by police to Nakuru municipal mortuary as investigation on the same continue.

Kiraguri added that a post-mortem will be conducted to ascertain the cause of the death.

“The only evidence we found at the scene is the drugs that were used. Assortment of several drugs and some syringes. We suspect the children were injected, while others they were forced to swallow” said Kiraguri.

The County Police boss added that only postmortem will ascertain the true cause of the death as a sharpened knife was found in the children’s bedroom, an indicator that if the children had not died after the injection, the suspect would have used the knife to kill them.

Players in the transport sector have called on the County Government of Nakuru to fast-track the construction of a new matatu terminus to improve their working conditions.

Led by Central Rift Matatu Owners Association Chairman, Stephen Muli the businessmen said the upcoming modern termini at the railway’s yard had taken longer to complete.

He argued that the delay was fuelling an extortion racket where County enforcement officers are said to be harrasing and receiving bribes from matatus plying undesignated zones.

“Our vehicles are being seized day and night and released with hefty fines. We will not allow this,” said Muli while accusing the County of what he termed as militarizing the enforcement unit.

He said his office had tried to reach Chief Officer for Public Service Training and Devolution, Paul Githinji to no avail. He said he will be reaching out to Governor Lee Kinyanjui on the same.

His sentiments were echoed by Nakuru Business Coalition Secretary, Simon Ole Nasieku who also accused Senator Susan Kihika of failing to champion for their business rights.

Mr Nasieku said the politicians had failed in coming up with friendly policies to see their businesses thrive, but instead turn to the businessmen for political mobilizations and votes.

The Friends of Devolution chairman, Benson Macharia said Counties should provide a good environment for business for all sectors, political affiliations notwithstanding.

When contacted, CO Githinji said urban planning was a function of the County government and that the Governor was committed to ensuring Nakuru City is habitable for all.
