A middle aged man kills mother because of 8000 inua jamii Cash


A 50-year-old man has died by suicide in Kangui area of Githunguri, Kiambu County leaving behind a note confessing to the murder of his 80-year-old mother. 

His mother was discovered dead at her home earlier this month, with reports indicating that she was murdered over Ksh.8,000 Inua Jamii Cash.

“The man Gikonyo Muchiiri noted in his suicidal note that he killed his mum Nyakero Muchiri because of the Inua Jamii cash … when he exhausted the money, he also killed himself,” a neighbour told journalists earlier this week

“He has already confessed to killing his mum… his mum was to be buried tomorrow but we don’t know if they will postpone the funeral so that the two can be buried together,” 

Residents claim the late Muchiri was under the influence of drugs in the lead-up to his death. 

He was discovered dead inside his home, having hung himself on the roof after writing a confession about murdering his mother.

Githunguri Police Commander Mary Kaimenyi confirmed the incident, saying that investigations into Nyakero Muchiri’s death are still ongoing.

“He had a written note in his pocket which reads that he felt guilty because of what he did to his mum,” Kaimenyi said. 

“Maybe according to the note, he knows what caused his mother’s death who died a while back .. we have launched investigations to find out what killed the mother.”
