    She could be my wife’s cousin. Insala kapondo bane, it doesn’t choose which party you belong to, let’s learn to respect each other’s nationality, race and most important respect elders in society.

  3. Don’t judge her fast, what if she sent her daughter to buy ka pamela then Uunga wakaeena was poisned that why they all eat? What if one of her children sprayed the doom in soup? What if someone who does not love them came and poisoned them? What if it was not intentional but acted under duress? who said mother poisoned the children because everyone was in conscious stage? so let my tribe cousin recover then she will tell us. NGO please look into this facts.

  6. Its good that she survived and face the full wrath of the law the anguish of killing her children. She should be nowhere near doom, a rope, kansimbi, etc.

  7. This story is unclear. No body knows whether it is a suicide or she and her children were poisoned by somebody else. There is no suicide note and it could even be accidental as she had small kids who could have added the Doom to water or food without any knowledge of the consequences.
    Very disheartening about the death of the kids, RIP!

  8. I turned my attention to all the acts of oppression that go on under the sun. I saw the tears of the oppressed, and there was no one to comfort them. And their oppressors had the power, and there was no one to comfort them. ?And I congratulated the dead who had already died rather than the living who were still alive. ?And better off than both of them is the one who has not yet been born, who has not seen the distressing deeds that are done under the sun.

  9. Each time you look at your mother be grateful. She could have killed you or abandoned you as a kid but she didn’t. Just love her
