A 22-year-old woman has been arrested in Bomet following the death of her son on Monday morning.

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.
