Police are investigating a case in which a 29-year-old woman said to be Patric Ayoyi’s wife is alleged to have poisoned her twin babies in Sabatia Sub County.
Linet Kavaluni is suspected of feeding the eight-month-old babies with rat poison on Tuesday evening.
The incident happened at Mambai Village in Sabatia. Area Assistant Chief said the circumstances under which the incident happened were yet to be established.
“I, however, have information that the woman appeared to have been mentally tormented from the day her husband trended in a sex video on social media platforms,” Mr Mbarani told journalists.
Sophia Kavochi, a neighbor only discovered that the babies were dead when she came to visit their mother. She tried to wake them up after they slept for long hours.
“Neighbors found the dead bodies at 4:33 pm on Tuesday but Kavulani had already fled the scene” he added.
Police have now launched a manhunt against the woman who is believed to be hiding within the village.
The bodies of the twins have been taken to mortuary awaiting postmortem examination.
