Details of what Lawrence Warunge told detectives attached to Rweno police station in Kiambu County when he was being grilled over the killings of his family members can now be revealed.
Warunge confessed to the police that he was the one who ended the lives of four family members and their farmhand.
According to detective privy to the ongoing investigation ,Warunge said that he first started by murdering their farmhand.
“He said that he then opened their gate, went and killed the mother and two children,” the detective, who spoke in anonymity as he is not authorised to speak to the media, said.
In his statement, the main suspect, a student at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, said that his father, Nicholas Njoroge, attempted to escape through the balcony where he hit an electric wire and fell down.
Lawrence then followed him to the gate where he stabbed and killed him on the spot.
After he established that he had ended the lives of all the people in the house, the suspect went and dumped the killer knife at a nearby river and fled.
However, detectives investigating the case had been informed that Lawrence’s differences with his family ran deep as he had reported his parents to the police in earlier incident.
