Dr. James Gakara passed away on Wednesday at a time he was receiving treatment at the Rift Valley Provincial General Hospital under tight security.
Gakara was being accused of killing his two children and attempting to commit suicide. It was reported that the medic injected his children with a poisonous substance before turning the syringe on himself.
“The scene indicates some drugs were used on the children and on himself. A postmortem shall be conducted to establish what type of drug it was,” Kiraguri clarified.
The crime took place at the doctor’s home in Kiamunyi Estate in the wee hours of Sunday morning.
On Tuesday, Ms Githinji disclosed that Dr. Gakara was her Gynecologist for more than a year.
She explained that Doctor Gakara was a joyful medic and never in her wildest dreams would she ever have imagined he would commit suicide.
“This guy has been treating me for like two years and he took me through the journey of endometriosis. He is the only doctor who diagnosed my condition when all others were just prescribing drugs,” she said.
The presenter added that the medic gave her hope at a time when her condition had deteriorated to a point where her mother was worried.
Ms Githinji urged Kenyans to check on their friends well being because just like her doctor, many are struggling with issues they can’t talk about.
