, NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 6 – The Magu family will be laid to rest next week on Tuesday, leaving behind an unresolved mystery over what caused their deaths.
Paul Magu Muhiu 35, Lydia Wangui Ndau 34, Ryan Ndau Magu 9, Allen Muhiu Magu 8 and Tiffany Wambui Magu 5 will be buried at their home in Kiganjo village, Thika West Sub-county.
Lydia was first to be found dead with burns on her body, before Paul ran into the path of an oncoming bus that killed him on the Thika-Garissa highway.
His three children were found dead days later in a thicket in Kiambu with their bodies mutilated and burnt with acid.
Investigations are currently ongoing with Ann Wanyoro, a pastor linked to the family, being held by the police.
It is believed that she could have information that could unravel the mysterious deaths.
Reports indicate Paul left a suicide note stating: “I cannot live a life of ridicule and embarrassment. Let it be.”
