Kenyan woman stabs her husband and kills their two children before attempting suicide

Police in Rongai, Kajiado County, Kenya, have launched investigations after a woman allegedly killed her two children, stabbed her husband three times in the head and neck after he returned home at midnight before attempting suicide. 

Christine Karimi, who was admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH), in critical condition, is accused of stabbing her husband, Rodgers Andere after an argument on Thursday, June 8, 2023. Neighbours say the couple has been having domestic issues at their home at Taaria Apartments along Maasai Lodge Road. 

The argument between Andere and Karimi turned tragic after the woman stabbed the man of the house three times, on the head and neck, after he arrived home past 1am. 30-year-old Andere escaped death by whisker after he left the house bleeding and sought help from neighbours who rushed him to a nearby health facility.

According to the police, Karimi, 28, who remained behind, is said to have locked the doors before allegedly killing her two children; Amani Otieno (6) and Tyrel Agogo (2) by stabbing them. She then turned the knife on herself.

Namu Moraa, a witness, said the couple who have resided in the area for the last three years had occasional domestic spats.

Kajiado North Police Commander Hussein Gura said officers recovered the murder weapon and have launched an investigation. Andere and Karimi are admitted at KNH where they’re receiving treatment. The bodies of their deceased children are at the City Mortuary
