A 45-year-old man on Tuesday killed his mother before committing suicide at their home in Githunguri, Kiambu County, following family disagreements.


 Simon Kimani allegedly pushed his 75-year-old mother Mercy Maingi into a well before committing suicide by jumping into it.


 According to family sources, Kimani and his mother disagreed over the beliefs and practices of a religious group to which he belonged.


 Controversial beliefs that have caused controversy include female genital mutilation (FGM) and allowing polygamy, which the mother opposes and warns her son against.


 Later, a team from the district disaster management department recovered the bodies from the well.  Meanwhile, Gitunguri police  are investigating the incident.
