Last week, she had told me she was four months pregnant, but was disturbed that her husband beat her whenever he came home drunk.” A neighbour said they suspected the attacker might have raped the teacher before killing her. Kathambi had bruises on the forehead, and police said they suspected the teacher died after she was hit by a blunt object at close range. They said they were investigating the killing. Illegal breweries Locals who thronged the scene blamed the killing on the proliferation of illegal breweries in the neighbourhood. Chief James Mutethia was booed by villagers when he arrived at the scene, with the residents accusing him of doing little to eradicate consumption of illicit brew and abuse of drugs. The chief, however, refused to address the media over the matter. Rael Murithi, a community leader, said cases of families breaking up were on the increase due to consumption of alcohol. “The Government should treat this issue with seriousness because some of the children have dropped out of schools because their drunkard parents cannot pay fees. Most of the men here spend their time and money in illicit brew dens,” Murithi said.
