Kiang’ombe man stabs wife to death over food.


Police in Thika are investigating a bizarre incident where a middle-aged man stabbed his wife several times killing her instantly after a quarrel that is believed to be over food.

According to neighbours, the man identified as Githuku, arrived at his home in Kiang’ombe Estate at 9pm on Sunday before picking a quarrel with his wife, Mary Muthoni, after she asked for money to buy food.

After an exchange of words, the man is said to have slapped his step-daughter, 12, and chased her away. The girl was forced to spend the night at a neighbour’s house.

Muthoni’s lifeless body was discovered Monday morning lying on her bed by her daughter when she came back home to collect her uniform in order to proceed to school.

She alerted her neighbours who reported the matter to the area chief for action.

The body of the deceased bore visible cut injuries on the head and her left thigh.

The police immediately launched a search for the man who pecks a living out of Kang’oki dumpsite in Thika. By the time we went to press, the suspect was still at large.

The body of the deceased was taken to General Kago Road Funeral Home awaiting autopsy.
