In their rental home in Nyagoro Trading Center, East Kochia Location, Homa Bay county, their father allegedly poisoned and stabbed four of their children, who have since been taken to the hospital in critical condition.
The youngsters, who ranged in age from 3 to 9, were seriously hurt on Tuesday night by their father, Ronnie Ochieng’ Nyore, amid reported domestic disputes between him and his wife.
Kennedy Odero, the East Kochia Location head who responded on the site, reported that Ronnie stabbed the kids in the stomach with a kitchen knife after poisoning them with the chemical Triatix, which is used to control ticks in cattle.
According to the administrator, they discovered an empty pesticide container that they believe the deceased used to end his life after poisoning his kids and then stabbed them with a kitchen knife.
Chief Odero thinks Ronnie poisoned and stabbed the four kids before locking himself in his rental home in Nyagoro Center, where he later killed himself by swallowing the pesticide.
The Omoya chief’s camp was contacted by Ronnie’s wife to request help because of their ongoing arguments, according to Odero.
He describes how the wife found her husband locked inside the house when she got home, and that when she pushed open the door, she discovered the kids laying in a pool of blood. Her husband had passed away previously.
The children were transported to Janeiro Private hospital by bodaboda riders and locals who heard her distress call. They were then transferred in critical condition to the Homa Bay county referral hospital.
To determine the incident’s primary cause, according to Odero, investigations are still ongoing.
The body of the deceased has been transported to the county referral mortuary in anticipation of the postmortem.
