A woman has been arrested after she killed three children including a two weeks old infant in a bizarre attack in Korogocho slums, Nairobi.
Police say Catherine Muthoni went berserk in the slum Tuesday morning and first stabbed to death her son aged 10 before she turned on the two others who belonged to her neighbour.
She strangled her neighbour’s sons aged four and 14 days as their mother watched and screamed helplessly. The motive of the incident is yet to be established but police are investigating it.
An irate mob cornered the alleged assailant and wanted to lynch her before olice on patrol rushed to her rescue in the 9 am incident.
The police have since transferred the bodies of the children to the mortuary.
