 Although 26-year-old Mary Mbosya Simon appeared before Kitui Resident Magistrate (RM) Maureen Kimani on Thursday, she was not allowed to take plea for the capital offence. The RM ordered that she be presented before the Kitui high court to plead to the charge in early November. 

The accused who appeared in court in a composed demeanour and had pleated her hair in short dreads will answer to the charge that on September 24th,2021 at Kaveta village in Kyangwithya East location of Kitui Central sub-county she murdered her son Aaron Mwau Mulani, a minor.

When the accused appeared in court on Thursday prosecution counsel, Christine Kabaale, told the court that the accused was mentally sound and could be tried as she had undergone mental examination at Mathari Mental hospital in Nairobi last Tuesday.

The magistrate thus directed that the accused person takes plea for the murder of her son who was a pupil at Isaangwa primary school in the outskirts of Kitui town, at the high court.

Police reports indicate that the Mbosya whipped her son to death after he allegedly collected Sh. 100 which was her day’s wages for working at her neighbour’s home.

When she asked the neighbour for the money, she was informed that the son had already collected the amount.

It was then that the enraged mother demanded that the son produces the money and when he failed to give her the money, the irate mother tied him with ropes and attacked him with a blunt panga. She hit him on the head resulting to his death, the police report said.
