Murang’a, Kenya: A 20-year-old woman died in unclear circumstances shortly after quarrelling with her lover in Mung’etho village, Murang’a South District.

The body of Evelyn Wanjiru was discovered lying in a pool of blood in her rented house by neighbours and relatives who broke in. She had not been seen since Sunday when she reportedly quarrelled with her lover, who disappeared on the same night.

Murang’a County Police Commander Naomi Ichami said the police moved the body to Murang’a District mortuary to facilitate investigations.

“The police have launched investigations into the death,” said Ms Ichami.

In another incident in the same area, a 33-year-old man committed suicide in a chief’s camp in Karung’e village.

Ichami said Ezekiel Muiga had been locked up at the Karung’e chief’s camp waiting to be taken to the nearby Nyakianga Police Station after his parents reported that their lives had been threatened.

He reportedly used a shoelace to hang himself.
