The family of the 42-year-old woman who murdered her four children in Naivasha has finally spoken out denying that their daughter had any financial or mental challenges.
The family said it was keenly waiting for a mental report on the suspect as they believed that there is more than meet the eye.
The mother of the children who has since been arraigned in court blamed evil spirits for her heinous action.
This came as the minors were laid to rest in the family’s rural home in Murungaru Kinangop where tears flowed freely as relatives and friends sought tens of unanswered questions.
As relatives and friends tried to come terms with the incident, a post mortem conducted on the bodies confirmed that they were murdered through strangling.
During the two hour ceremony, the mother Beatrice Mwende was absent as she is in police custody. Her two remaining sons cried bitterly during the ceremony.

According to reports, the four minors who were murdered were Melody Warigia (8yrs), Willy Macharia (6yrs) both students of Milimani primary school, Samantha Njeri (4yrs) and Whitney Nyambura (2yrs).
The elder brother to the suspect Macharia Kimotho said that they were keenly waiting for a report of a psychiatrist on the status of the suspect.
Macharia told of the family’s pain on learning of the deaths before unknown people posted the pictures of the dead minors on social media.
“There has been so much misinformation over the deaths but what we know is that our sister did not have any depression or financial challenges as reported,” he said.
He added that they had forgiven those who posted the pictures and fake information in various social media platforms terming the minors as innocent angels.
“It’s shameful and barbaric for those who posted those pictures on social media causing us untold paid but we do forgive them,” he said.
Waithaka Mwangi, former Nyandarua Deputy Governor expressed his concern over an increase in cases of marital disputes among the young people.
He noted that illicit brews which were readily available could have caused the problems and challenged the government to deal with them.
“We are calling on our youths to speak out when one has some challenges instead of committing such an act on innocent children,” he said.
On his part, Murungaru sub-county assistant county commissioner Sarah Magut called on women to speak out whenever faced with challenges noting that suicide and murder was not the solution.
“We have had challenges during this period of COVID-19 pandemic with cases of depression and early pregnancy on the rise and we are keen to work and solve the challenges,” she said.
A cleric David Njuguna noted that the current challenges facing the nation including job losses and lack of income had seen cases of domestic violence rise.
“There is a very big problem in the country due to the pandemic and we have seen families turn to each and there is need for engagement,” he said.
