Nakuru - A 70-year-old Nakuru woman who allegedly strangled her three-month-old grandson to death claims that she was sent by ‘spirits’ to do so.
According to police reports, the granny who was drunk when she strangled the boy, said that she was not in her normal self when she committed the act.
The incident which happened Sunday night at Langa Langa estate shocked many residents as the boy’s mother was present when the granny killed him.
Addressing the press Thursday morning, Nakuru OCPD Bernard Kioko said that the granny told the police that she was possessed at the time she killed her grandson and the same spirit had taken hostage of her daughter to prevent her from raising the alarm.

“The old woman claims she was sent by some spirit to do what she did but that is just a story for our ears. We have no otherwise but to take them both to face the law because the boy’s mother was present when his son was being killed and she did nothing,” said Kioko.
It is alleged that both the granny and her daughter (the boy’s mother) were drunk at the time of the incident.
They are due to be availed in court Thursday afternoon to face murder charges.
