Over the past few days, the whole country was in shock after a doctor based in Nakuru allegedly killed his two children. Reports indicate that Dr. Gakara injected a substance believed to be insulin on his children aged five and and three years old.
According to various sources, Dr. Gakara committed the beastly act after a disagreement with his wife who had made arrangements to go further her studies abroad. His sister however denied the allegations. While speaking to the press, she said that his brother is a cool person who would do anything to protect his children. The claims that he disagreed with wife on going abroad for studies is false because he knew about the plans and supported it by paying for her school fees, said Dr. Gakara’s sister.
The doctor was declared dead a few days after fighting for his life in the ICU. A government pathologist by the name Titus Ngulungu on Friday released the results of the post-mortem done on Gakara’s body. The results showed that Dr. Gakara died as a result of ingesting a foreign substance. He stated that there were injection marks on his arm but they are not sure if the substance was injected by the deceased or by another doctor.
Dr. Ngulungu has urged his family to go on with his burial as they have taken samples of his tissues and organs to establish if he might have been killed. The other results will be out but not sure when. The post-mortem done on the two minors could not establish what exactly killed them and detectives took their samples for further investigations. The two children and their father will be buried in their Mbaruuk home in Gilgil sub-county on Tuesday.
