A 37-year-old man killed his two sons and later hang himself in Mithumoni village, Mbooni sub-county of Makueni county.
The man who was not identified immediately is said to have hacked the 9-year-old and four-year-old to death before proceeding to the nearest Mango tree where he hanged himself.
The excruciating incident was confirmed by Nduluku location chief Jeremiah Makau who said that worried neighbors found the bodies.
“When people woke up and didn’t see the man nor the kids they were worried, so they went to check on them. On entering the house they found the bodies of the boys,” said the chief.
“While looking for the father they found his body dangling from a nearby Mango tree,” he added.
The chief said that the man lived with his two sons while his wife is outside for work. He noted that when the incident occurred he was not around.
“She comes sometimes but when this happened she wasn’t around,” he noted.
He warned parents not to direct their anger on kids once they have a squabble. He said the motive of the attack by the man is still a mystery.
