Detectives in Kitengela, Kajiado county, have arrested a 27-year-old woman who allegedly stabbed to death her two-year-old daughter and later fed on her remains.
Olivia Naseren is alleged to have killed her child, Glory Njeri, after she parted ways with the minor’s father.
Naseren had locked herself in her house playing with the baby when she suddenly became violent and started breaking household items.
The noise attracted her neighbours who watched in disbelief as she descended on her daughter with a knife more than 100 times, as they could not access the room to rescue the innocent soul.
Police and the locals managed to break into the house and found the woman unconscious.
“Juvenile aged two years old was sliced by the mother into pieces, and she later fed on her intestines the suspect was found at the scene unconscious and escorted to the Kitengela Sub-county Hospital for treatment,” the police report read in part.
“Neighbours were attracted by noise from her house and they rushed into her room where they found she had locked herself inside alongside the minor. She began by breaking her TV set before she picked her baby whom she stabbed more than 100 times as neighbours watched in disbelief. She later dismembered her body and began eating the deceased body parts.”
The woman was rushed to Kitengela Sub-county Hospital for treatment pending further action.
“Upon arrival at the hospital she was treated and forced to vomit the alleged body parts which are now part of the evidence in the case,” police added.
The deceased’s body was taken to Kitengela Sub-county Hospital morgue awaiting autopsy.
