Police reports indicate that Sharon Chebet, a resident of Chepkogen village in Chemaner, plunged her two boys aged 6 and 4 years into a 40-metre well and left them to drown at about 10am.
Luckily, a neighbour heard the little angels wailing in distress, from deep inside the water hole.
The neighbour raised alarm and was joined by other well-wishers who rescued the boys who were drenched in water.
The children were rushed to Longisa County Referral hospital where sadly the 4-year-old boy passed on. His elder brother survived the harrowing ordeal.
The boys’ mother was immediately placed in custody for the beastly act and is being processed for arraignment.
