NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 9 – Was the recent killings of a five member family in Kiambu County sanctioned by their own blood?

What is the motive and why has the deceased couple’s son labeled his slain parents as satanic and killers?

Detectives Saturday confirmed arresting the couple’s son, a university student, who suspiciously went missing following the killings.

While it was initially believed he was in school, his phone signal was tracked to multiple places and at some point, in Naivasha, within Nakuru County.
