How can a mother hang her own child?
Police have arrested a woman who beat up and hanged her four-year-old daughter in Gikingi location, Nyandarua county.
Cecilia Wangeci, who is at Oljoro Orok police station, killed her daughter on Saturday morning.
Wangeci is said to have woken a neighbor called Damba, telling her she was going to the chief’s office to report the incident.
Damba inquired about the child and Wangeci told her to go and look in the house.
Concerned, Damba rushed to Wangeci’s house calling the girl’s name but received no response. She found the girl had been hanged from the roof and alerted neighbors who called the police.

Swift action by police and the area chief Mary Njoroge prevented residents from lynching Wangeci.
“What pains us so much is how she got the courage to put a rope around her child’s neck even after beating her,” she said.
The girl’s body was moved to the mortuary, while Wangeci is expected in court on Monday. Neighbors said Wangeci had beaten the child on Friday evening and also woke up to beat her on Saturday.
