In a heartfelt narrative, the mother disclosed that her daughter had been involved in a series of problematic incidents, including theft, throughout her life.
The mother of the prime suspect in the murder case of Nairobi Hospital Finance Director Eric Maigo has opened up about her daughter’s troubled past, revealing a pattern of bad behaviour dating back to her early school years.
In a heartfelt narrative, the mother disclosed that her daughter had been involved in a series of problematic incidents, including theft, throughout her life. This behaviour culminated in her being linked to the shocking murder of Eric Maigo.
The mother recalled that, prior to her involvement in the murder case, her daughter had rarely spent nights away from home. It came as a shock to her when she discovered that her daughter had left their home in the middle of the night, possibly shortly before the murder occurred.
Distressed by her daughter’s actions, the mother took the matter into her own hands, deciding to involve local authorities. She recounted telling her daughter, “I will report you to the Chief so he can question you about your whereabouts when you leave the house at night.”
According to the mother, her daughter’s tumultuous journey began during her school years. Even at a young age, she exhibited behaviour that was difficult to control. Her education suffered as a result, and she eventually dropped out of school, despite receiving sponsorship from a benefactor.
The mother revealed that her daughter’s behaviour started to change when she was in Class Four. Instead of attending school, she would hide her uniform in her bag on her way there and spend her days aimlessly wandering the streets before returning home in the evening, claiming she had been at school.
Frustrated by her daughter’s behaviour, the mother’s sister took custody of the troubled teen and enrolled her in a school in Ruai, away from their previous neighbourhood in Kayole. However, the troubled teen’s misconduct persisted, and she soon found herself in trouble once again, this time at her new school.
Currently, the suspect is detained for 21 days as the police continue their investigation into the case.
