A 21-year-old woman has been arrested for stabbing her fiance to death after a disagreement. The incident happened at ‘White-House’ estate in Nakuru just a day before the suspect was to introduce John Mwango to her parents.
Nakuru Town East Sub-county police commander Ellena Kabukuru said the suspect picked a quarrel with the man before she stabbed him several times with a kitchen knife. The couple had courted for four months and had just moved in together.
The man’s body was found lying in a pool of blood and moved to Nakuru County morgue. Elsewhere, police officers arrested three people suspected to be involved in fraudulent activities. According to Siaya County police boss Francis Kooli, the three were arrested on Wednesday in Bondo Sub-county with fake sim cards, mobile phones and a cheque book.
Mr Kooli said police have started a manhunt for more suspects involved in the fraud that involves illegal registration of mobile phone sim cards. Speaking yesterday at Bondo Police Station, Mr Kooli said one of the suspects was a prominent businessman in Bondo town.
"We've already written to the Kenya Prisons Service headquarter to confirm if the said suspect is still in service after it was alleged that he also worked as a prison officer," said Kooli. "This investigation requires in-depth work that will involve the Cyber Crime and Anti-Fraud units, which will establish for how long the criminals have been using the sim cards to con people." He added that many people had lost money through such scams. Kooli said his office has started to sensitise the public on digital fraud that is now commonplace.
