SAD: Nakuru doctor accused of killing his children dies



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.

Karuana Gakara, aged three, and Dylan Gakara, five, who are suspected to have been killed by their father, Dr James Gakara.


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.
