Man kills wife in Gilgil

By Antony Gitonga | July 29th 2020

A domestic feud ended on a sour note after a man stabbed and killed his wife in Gilgil town before surrendering himself to the police.

The Tuesday morning incident happened in Gilgil sub-county hospital staff quarters where two minors died on Monday night after they were poisoned by unknown persons.

In the latest incident, the middle-aged woman who doubles as a nurse at the facility died after she was stabbed over ten times by the husband.

Following the incident, nurses in the busy facility downed their tools for over an hour as they moved to mourn with the family of the deceased.

A witness Jane Waithera said that they were attracted to the house of the deceased as she sought help.

"We are not sure what led the husband to commit this incident but the woman has been stabbed," she said.

A senior police officer from Gilgil police station confirmed the incident adding that the suspect was in their custody.

"The man after committing the incident walked to the police station and confessed to the murder. The body has been collected and taken to the local mortuary," said the officer.
