Muthoni, on the other hand, managed to get out of the house after the incident at 1.30 a.m. and alerted her father-in-law Stephen Njuguna.
“My daughter-in-law ran to my house screaming that her husband had murdered their infant boy,” he stated.
“We’re still stunned because we don’t understand why someone would commit such a horrific crime and murder an innocent child,” Kiguro continued.
The deceased was transferred to Gen Kago mortuary in Thika for a postmortem while police investigated further.
Netizens have urged the government to put measures protecting everyone in the country especially women.
May his soul rest in peace. We pray woman to get justice.
