A three-year-old boy died in a Nairobi hospital five days after he was allegedly assaulted by his stepfather.
Emanuel Muriithi succumbed to his injuries at the Nairobi West Hospital on Wednesday following the assault incident that happened in Gatina area, Kawangware home on March 16.
Police say the stepfather identified as Anthony Kariuki Kamau, 26 was arrested and would be charged in court with various offences.
The child’s mother had arrived home late from work on March 16 and was informed of the assault.
The child had apparently sustained serious injuries which forced her to rush him to Avenue Nursing Home in Parklands the following day.
