According to reports, the deceased woman, identified as Moleen Akinyi, poisoned her kids before taking her own life.
She reportedly left a suicide note blaming her husband, a Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officer based in Somalia, for abandoning them.
Neighbours raised alarm following a bad stench emanating from the woman’s house, and having not seen her or her three children for three days.
Their bodies were taken to the Gilgil sub-county mortuary.
Below are photos of the deceased woman and her husband, a KDF officer, whom she blamed for abandoning her and her three kids.
