Today on the dailies, police were probing a case where a 4-month-old baby perished in Kirinyaga while the mother was at her male neighbor’s house partying and enjoying drinks.
The 35-year-old woman was reported to the Kangai police post by the deceased’s uncle over irresponsibility.
The woman, Sarah Waruguru, allegedly left her babygirl and went on a drinking spree since 8 am on Saturday and did not bother to check on her child even once, the woman says they only paused when they had downed all the beers.
Kenyans have expressed dismay over the incident on social media, here are a few of them:
