An eight-year-old Kenyan boy, Enos Barasa, lost his life on Sunday, June 11, after his mother, 37 year old Christine Nasimiyu, left him in a locked car to go have sex in a hotel with 60 year old lover.
The boy was buried today amidst tears in a funeral that saw his older siblings in attendance.
Enos had seemingly suffocated to death after he was left in the vehicle without the engine running. But a post-morterm, according to Kenyan news outfit, Tuko.ke, revealed he died of injuries to the head.
It remains unknown who caused the injuries.
Enos’ mother and her lover were arrested by police after they were almost lynched to death by an angry mob.
Tuko adds that not many people attended the funeral following the circumstances in which the boy died. They claimed Simiyu had shamed her family and they wouldn’t associate with such behaviours.
