Man kills his ex-girlfriend, then turns the knife on himself

A man was said to have stabbed his former girlfriend, then killed himself.

The 39-year-old man who worked as a security guard in Nairobi, was said to have killed the second-year clinical medicine student at Kabianga University on Thursday last week, allegedly accusing the woman, 24, of leaving him for another man.

According to the Chemaner location senior chief, David Kebenei, the two had been having disagreements.

“The two are said to have been in a relationship, but when the man married another woman, the girl moved on, but he kept following her and trying to convince her to continue dating him.

“When the girl said she was not ready to continue with the relationship he started threatening her,” the chief said.

He added that the man travelled from Nairobi. He stormed the girl’s home and stabbed her several times before turning the weapon on himself.

“The man broke into the home of this girl and stabbed her before slitting his throat with the same knife,” said the chief.

Mr Kebenei said the girl’s mother, who was sleeping in a different room, was woken up by screams and found her daughter and the man lying in a pool of blood.

Bomet OCPD Samson Rukunga said investigations were going on.
