Police Launch Manhunt For Middle-aged Woman Who Killed Husband.

Authorities in Thika have launched a manhunt for a middle-aged woman after she allegedly stabbed her husband to death due to what is believed to be a domestic quarrel.

According to preliminary reports, the two have been living together for a while now until recently when they were heard having some domestic quarrels.

The victim, Fredrick Mwangi Gitau, who is a caretaker in the same building they were living in Ngoigwa Estate near Kisiwa Primary School, was stabbed to death inside the apartment.

Confirming the incident, Thika Deputy OCPD Bernard Ayoo told reporters on Friday that they received report the previous night that a man in his 30s had been stabbed to death by his wife. Upon arrival, they found three blood-stained kitchen knives next to the deceased’s body.

“We found him lying along the corridor with several knife wounds on his chest. By the look of things, it seems there had been a struggle before this young man succumbed to his injuries,” said Ayoo.

The OCPD said that they were searching for this woman who fled immediately after the murder.

“We cannot establish what exactly happened or was the real cause of the quarrel as at now, but we are still investigating. The lady fled immediately after and we have launched a manhunt,” he said.

He appealed to anyone who might have a clue of what really transpired to bring forth that information to the police so as to assist them in their investigations. He also asked the members of public to contact the nearest police station in case they came across the suspect or knew of her whereabouts.

According to sources close to the couple, it is alleged that the lady, only known as Wangari, previously worked as a bar waitress before she came to live with the man as his wife. She came along with a three year-old daughter and did not have any child with the deceased.

She is said to have fled with her daughter immediately after the murder.      

A couple of weeks ago, the deceased is alleged to have called his boss seeking assistance to solve some domestic problems with his wife.  This never materialised as he met his death before the landlord managed to honour this invitation.
