Its alleged that Nankya grabbed a knife and stabbed one of the children and the the second one was strangled to death and the husband rescued the third one as she was also strangling him.
Her husband and father of the deceased, Kamya Seguya, who was in tears, told us that when she returned she rang the bell to open the gate for her but there was no response and she jumped the gate and fell inside. He said what shocked him was to find his children in a pool of blood already dead and when she asked what happened the wife said that Jesus had told her to send the Kids to him. With tears rolling from his eyes Kamya also wondered what tempted his wife to kill the children.
