In the same state in September, a 73-year-old former Treasury employee and her 47-year-old daughter were found butchered in their house.
The bodies of Judith Mwai and Catherine Nyaguthie Mwai were found in separate rooms in their Golden Gates home, both bearing strangulation marks.
Preliminary police investigations showed nothing was stolen from the house.
Mr Ndolo says probing is underway to determine how the boy died and why the incident was not reported to the police.
