• She said Naserian’s mother welcomed her daughter last week on Thursday but they noticed a change in behaviour.
• Wanjiku said Naserian had not told anyone that she was leaving her boyfriend’s home.
Olivia Naserian’s aunt, Gladys Wanjiku, on Tuesday described her niece, the woman accused of killing her two-year-old baby on Sunday night, as a disciplined child, who respected her parents and close relatives.
However, Wanjiku is disturbed by what happened on that night when Naserian is said to have gone wild before killing her child.
She had locked herself in her mother’s house in Kitengela before committing the crime that has left many in shock.
“Something is very wrong. We were not here, but the reports we are getting from our neighbours is that Naserian started talking in tongues and chasing after the only dog at home hours before descending on her child,” said Wanjiku.
She said that Naserian, a student at a local university, had gone to live with her boyfriend in Kirinyaga for close to 8 months, and returned last week. However, they noticed she was disturbed.
She said Naserian’s mother, who is a teacher, also noticed the weird behaviour of her daughter when she arrived on Thursday.
“When she arrived at their Kitengela home, she even helped her mother prepare chapatis and all the time she would jump on her mother and show her a lot of love,” said Wanjiku.
Wanjiku said Naserian had not told anyone that she was leaving her boyfriend’s home. after an eight-month stay.
“The mother of her boyfriend told us that Naserian left with her laptop, her child and without her cellphone. We do not know what happened to her before she left Kirinyaga,” said her aunt.
And upon her arrival, her mother sent her Sh1,000 for a taxi and even promised to buy her a new phone.
She explained that Naserian is a member of the Anglican Church of Kenya in Kitengela, but she is not sure which church she attended while in Kirinyaga.
Naserian, according to her neighbours, started shouting and speaking in tongues on Sunday night before breaking utensils, windows and the TV.
This was before she grabbed her child and started stabbing her.
Her neighbours, who sought anonymity, said they attempted to persuade her to leave the child but she went on to eat the baby’s body parts.
On Tuesday morning before she was taken to court, Naserian demanded to see her child.
When the Star attempted to contact Naserian’s boyfriend, he picked up the call and refused to talk. He is using Naserian’s phone.
