Kilifi, Kenya: A man killed his wife before he chopped off her private parts with a sharp panga and later committed suicide by hanging himself under a tree.

Erickson Bakari Kayaa is said to have picked a quarrel with his wife at Roka Maweni village in Bahari Sub County in Kilifi County on Saturday night before he committed the offense.

Kilifi OCPD  Mr. Justin Nyaga confirmed the incident saying the bodies of the deceased persons were moved to Kilifi County hospital mortuary.

Matsangoni location Chief Mr. Festus Yaa said the couple have been having endless quarrels for some time until Saturday night when the husband resolved to kill her wife by cutting her with a panga and later chopped off her private parts.

'The sad incident took place at Roka Maweni a neighbouring village with my location but it is true that the husband killed her wife and later hanged himself under a mango tree' said the chief.

According to the deceased man’s brother Mr. Ziro Kayaa, the couples have been living alone at Roka Maweni village.

Mr. Kayaa who talked to the Standard, said the two have been having quarrels since November last year and the family had in several times tried to bring the two together and address their differences in vain.

Kayaa said according to the first witnesses, his deceased brother is suspected to have differed with his wife before he picked a sharp panga that he used to attack her.

Mr. Kayaa said his late brother had married the deceased wife recently after she had left another husband and at the time of their death, they had not been blessed with children.

'My late brother had recently married the late wife after she had left another man and by the time of their death, they had not been blessed with children' said Kayaa

OCPD Nyaga described the incident as a beastly act as the late husband cut the body of his deceased wife several times before he chopped off her private parts.

“We have launched investigations to establish what caused the death of the two, though reports we are getting from family members and villagers is that the two had been having some domestic quarrels for some time before they met their death,” said Mr. Nyaga
