Kenyan woman kills 3-year-old daughter to keep house-help job

2016-04-14 13:27

Kisii - A 21-year-old woman in Kisii County reportedly killed her daughter in order to keep her house-help job in Nairobi, Kenya.

The woman had just brought the baby back home after her employer at Umoja Estate in Nairobi said she could not work efficiently with the baby.

But back home, her relatives refused to stay with the three-year-old girl. According to the  Standard, she then took the baby and drowned her in a river on Monday morning.

Relatives who became suspicious of her rushed move back to Nairobi after the baby went missing, reported the matter to the area chief who arrested her.

This was not the first time that a family feud had ended in murder in the east African country.

Last month, a 40-year-old man in the same County was reportedly sentenced to 200 years in prison for killing his four children following a disagreement with his wife.
