Shocking details emerge on how sons of Jubilee politician were brutally killed
Their throats were slit open and bodies dumped in River Nzoia.
A close family friend has revealed that the three children, Clifford Nyambane (6), Taniy Nyamweya (5) and Glen Ongaki (3), had their throats slit by a sharp object before being dumped in the river.
He also added that Nyambane, who is the eldest child, had a deep scar on his head sustained from a blunt object.
The three went missing last Saturday while on their way to church but were later found dead in a move believed to stem from a family-feud and not politics.

Their father, James Ratemo, who is seeking the MCA seat in Kapsoya ward, called on the police to establish the motive and perpetrators behind the killings.
Brother-in-law’s distressing message
Their mother Essy Isaji said that she had a troubled relationship with her brother-in-law, the main suspect behind bars.
The two’s strained relationship began when the in-law impregnated Ms.Esaji’s house help and was eventually forced to marry her.
Since then, he became bitter to which Ms.Esaji revealed the chilling message he sent to her moments before the children were reported missing.
Part of the message read:
“Umepewa muda mdogo sana urudishe mali yetu, kwetu wanawake hawatumii mali yetu usichukulie ni mchezo (You have been given limited time to return our property, in our community women are not allowed to have a share of our property, do not take this as a joke).”
Ms.Isaji said that she is yet to come to terms with the message even though she believes there was no harm in marrying her husband.
The three children were recovered on different days with Glen being the last one to be pulled out of the river on Friday afternoon.
Their bodies are lying at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital pending post-mortem investigations to ascertain the cause of the deaths.
