A man on Thursday stabbed his two daughters to death in Mishomoroni, Mombasa county, after asking them to get into the house to eat mangoes.
Mr James Maina, 30, met his daughters playing outside their home in Mishomoroni, Mombasa county, Kenya, while their mother wasn’t around and he asked them to come in and eat mangoes.
Like any trusting child would, the girls, aged six and four, dashed indoors, looking forward to sharing the juicy fruits with their father.
But their 30-year-old father instead grabbed a knife from their cluttered, one-room house and attacked them.
He stabbed one in the chest and the other in the neck.
Rather than call for help, the father, who was reportedly drunk at the time, sat on a keg near where his bleeding daughters lay.
