Barely a week after the burial of the two slain Kianjokoma brothers, their family is yet again mourning the loss of their 94-year-old grandmother.
Felix Nthiga, the uncle and family spokesperson, said grandmother Gladys Embu was close to the boys and went mute when she learnt of the boys’ demise.
“She was the only surviving grandmother and was very close to the boys. She was a strong woman but after the deaths, she would come to the homestead and never speak to anyone,” Nthiga said at the family home in Kithangari village, about 500m from Kianjokoma market.
John Ndwiga, the father of the slain brothers, said their grandmother succumbed to high blood pressure caused by depression after learning of her grandsons’ deaths.
