One Boy In The Strangulation Case Laid To Rest
Seven-year-old Mayson Mito was laid to rest on Thursday, in Kakamega County after he and his nine-year-old brother, Winston Limusi brother were murdered in their bedroom.
Their mother, a nurse, Pherine Maero is the prime suspect in this case where the county’s pathologist confirmed death by strangulation.
Mourners at the burial ceremony were filled with grief as they paid their last respects to the little boy.
"It is so painful for me to lose my son. The boys stayed with me here for five days after closing school before I took them to their mother. It didn't take long before I was informed of their death," said Mayson’s father.
Villagers and friends in attendance expressed their deep sympathies and condolences to the family and relatives of the deceased boy who the father described as cheerful.
The only politicians at the funeral were Isukha South MCA, Farouk Machanje, and his Gladys Mukolongolo, Idakho North.
The nurse is said to have stabbed herself in the neck and back after the incident and is admitted at Kakamega County Teaching and Referral hospital in critical condition after she reportedly attempted suicide after strangling his sons.
The police are waiting for her to recuperate so that she can tell more about what transpired that fateful night.
Only one of the boys was buried, Winston’s body is being preserved in Kakamega General Hospital Mortuary, the boys had different fathers but were both loved unconditional by the rest of the family.
