Residents of Kitengela were left in shock after they watched in horror as the woman stabbed the two-year-old girl to death before she dismembered her and fed on her remains.
Naserian, 24, a Fourth Year Commerce student at a local university is alleged to have killed her child, Glory Njeri, after she parted ways with the minor's father.
According to police, the woman is said to have cut her baby into pieces before feeding on the intestines and kidney, in an incident that left locals speechless with rage.
Neighbours who heard the minor’s screams rushed to the house suspecting criminals had attacked the homestead only to find the young mother naked and violently attacking her daughter while singing nursery school rhymes.
The horrifying attack was captured on video by neighbours who tried in vain to break the door.
When the neighbours managed to break the door and get into the house, the toddler was already dead and the young mother had collapsed.
According to the neighbours, the parents of the young mother, who live in the same house, were not at home at the time of the incident.
Police plan to take her to the hospital for mental tests. The remains were taken to the local morgue.
