The man slit throats of his five sons aged between ages 10 and two with a kitchen knife and then hanged himself in the same room.
Neighbours said the man had a disagreement with his 37-year-old wife before a fight between them ensued.
The wife however managed to escape with slight injuries on the left shoulder making the man turn his rage on the children.
Area District Commissioner Cyrus Gatobu who visited the scene confirmed that the tragedy emanated from a domestic disagreement.
He confirmed that the wife had been treated at the nearby Sirikwa Dispensary and discharged.
