A woman in Nairobi’s Komarock Estate committed suicide on Wednesday and that’s after poisoning her two young children.
The woman, identified as 33-year-old Jane Mwende, hanged herself with an iron box cable after the poisonous substance she also took failed to kill her.
The police who have now launched investigations into the incident said they found a suicide note in the woman’s bedroom in which she claimed she was tired of being mistreated by her husband.
Her husband confirmed the allegations and told the police that they had an altercation and hadn’t talked with each other for almost a day.
The father of two, however, did not think that his wife would resort to such extreme measures.
Luckily, the two children, a boy aged seven years old and a 3-year-old girl, were rescued by her neighbours and rushed to Komarock Modern Hospital where they are admitted in serious condition.
