The bodies were in their beds, with multiple stab wounds on the heads.

Police said one murder weapon was recovered. The suspect is yet to lead the officers to where he claims he threw the axe he says he used to attack his family.

Efforts to remove the bodies to Kerugoya county mortuary are ongoing but the heavy rains made the roads impassable.

At some point, police said, the vehicles ferrying the bodies were stuck.
