Father of murdered Nakuru children dies in hospital

Nakuru doctor James Gakara, who was found unconscious next to his two dead children in their home, has died.

Dr Gakara died at the Nakuru Level 5 Hospital where he was receiving treatment under the watch of police officers.

The bodies of the children and their unconscious father were on Saturday night found inside their apartment in Milimani, Nakuru.

Dr Gakara’s family said they suspected foul play in the murders after preliminary police reports indicated that Dr Gakara killed the children before attempting suicide.

On the day the murders happened, a friend of Ms Odhiambo said Dr Gakara had called his wife as he had lunch with the children. Their mother had left for Nairobi in the morning.

On Monday, Dr Gakara’s sister, Mary Gakara, asked the police to have an open mind as they investigate the murders and the alleged attempted suicide.

Police officers interviewed by the Nation said they had begun investigations into the killings that have shocked residents of Nakuru, where the doctor owns a clinic located in Section 5
