A woman residing in Waithaka, Dagoretti Sub County in Nairobi, on Sunday strangled her two sons to death for unknown reasons.

According to a police OB report accessed by K24 Digital, Nasimiyu Kibisu went to Waithaka Police Station around 07:30 pm to report that she had killed her two children.

She told police officers that the remains of her children Sydney Miheso, aged four years, and Miracle Miheso, aged 2 years were lying on the sofa of her house.

Police officers on duty swung into action and visited the crime scene where the remains of the two children were found.

Police say preliminary investigations are yet to establish why the woman killed her two children.

Nasimiyu was thereafter arrested and is in police custody pending further investigations and arraignment.

Police told K24 Digital that they were unable to process her for a court appearance on Monday since the incident happened at night and they had therefore not concluded preliminary investigations.

She is scheduled for a court appearance on Tuesday where detectives will ask for more time to finish investigations.

The remains of the two children were taken to the City Mortuary awaiting autopsy.
