A Kenyan senior doctor is in police custody after allegedly killing his two children before attempting suicide in Nakuru on Sunday.
Reports indicated that James Muriithi Gakara, an obstetrician at Optimum Current Hospital in Nakuru, injected the two minors aged three and fives with human insulin before attempting to take his life.
He had a disagreement with his wife prior to the incident.
The medic was rescued and rushed to hospital under tight security after also injecting himself with the medication used to control blood sugar in people who have diabetes.
But unfortunately, the two children, a boy and girl, were already dead by the time of the rescue.
Their bodies were moved to Nakuru Municipal mortuary as a probe into the incident continues.
