The sins of a brazen father now on the run; a love turned sour; and four wasted lives - three of them children too young to defend themselves against the person they all looked up to before hell broke loose. Outside the house, the heavy rain battering the roof muted their final cries, including that of a helpless girl who was raped before being killed by her own father. There was blood all over the beds in two different rooms. All four lay motionless — a mother and her three children gone in a flash, because of the murderous rage of a man who passed himself along as a caring father to the young ones, and a loving husband to Pamela Achieng, 38. He slit their throats in a grisly incident and ran away. Tears flowed as stunned and petrified residents of the grisly killings. Speechless and numbed by the sheer horror of the crime, they just looked at the bodies —found more than six hours after the macabre killings. Some just wept uncontrollably. The horror unfolded in Kisumu’s Nyalenda on Saturday night — and Kenyans came to know about it as they trooped to church on Sunday buoyed by the talk in town that this August would be as jinxed as all the others have been. It was a chilling trail left by the bicycle operator said to have gone berserk, something his former neighbours cannot comprehend, especially when they look at the old family pictures from which the innocent children radiate a charming smile. Defiled daughter Signs of the feeble struggle Pamela and her children - Winnie Anyango (13) Michael Obwago (9) and Bryan Otieno, (6) put up were discernible from the panga cuts on their necks and heads, and the mess that was their once rented house. The father reportedly also defiled his first-born, Winnie, in the incident believed to have taken place around 10pm. In one room, the bodies of the children lay on one bed in a pool of blood. In another lay the mutilated remains of their mother.
