According to the politician, having known the late Magare, it would be disrespectful to their friendship to to have child with his wife....
Gakii requested him to take her to her house at Pole Pole market (so that they could ravish each other kwa kipooole)
Sex is a beautiful thing, they say. But sex, it appears, no longer thrills — it kills!
And modern men, assumed to be the “stronger sex” are discovering the hard way that they are way weaker than their drunken and withered grandpas who hugged nubile lasses into the sunset (of course with clandestine aid from the herdsman).
These poor men are discovering, too late, that the “big bang theory” is a hoax and that gasping for breath is not exactly orgasmic when the blue pill powers their unfit legs into the last kicks of a dying horse — eating contraband goods in a seedy lodging, no less.
This matter, of men dying during coitus (sounds like something only chickens do, right?) has been the subject of dark humour for weeks, with wags counselling men to leave marathons to Eliud Kipchoge and instead bolt home and dry in 9.58 seconds ala Usain Bolt.
But a Chogoria businessman said nyet. He wasn’t running marathons or bolting. He wanted nothing to do with the damn thing. And now Police are investigating his murder.

Martin Kaiga, 42, is alleged to have died from stab wounds inflicted by his 20-year-old lover Susan Gakii because he refused to sleep over. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
On the fateful day, Kaiga is said to have picked up Gakii for a date at a local bar, where the two enjoyed some good time. But because Satan works in mysterious ways, things didn’t go as planned. According to Kaiga’s friends who spoke to the Nairobian, Gakii obviously wasn’t too thrilled when one of Kaiga’s ex-girlfriends joined them at the table. To her chagrin, rather that her man shooing his old flame away, he not only said “karibu” but bought her drinks as well.
Gakii didn’t fancy the arrangement one bit, and she is reported to have cooked up a plan that would ensure that Kaiga spends the night with her and not his ex. She requested him to take her to her house at Pole Pole market, in the outskirts of Chogoria town (so that they could ravish each other kwa kipooole — but she didn’t tell him this bit though).
A police report says the two went out together and that when they arrived at the house, Gakii asked Kaiga to please get into the house. But when he did, she locked the door and demanded that he sleeps over. This way, she would ensure that Kaiga did not go back to his ex-girlfriend. But Kaiga didn’t like it. A confrontation ensued. Gakii picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed Kaiga on the right side of his chest. Poof.
He raised an alarm which attracted neighbours who ran to the house to find out what was going on only to find the door shut. Among them was Glory Mwende.
“We decided to break one of the house windows to see what was happening as we could hear a man groaning. When we saw Kaiga lying in a pool of blood, we decided to break the door to gain entry," Mwende said.
Gakii is said to have stabbed herself in the stomach during the commotion. The two were rushed to Chogoria Mission Hospital where Kaiga succumbed to injuries on arrival. Gakii is, however, in a stable condition.
John Kimathi, alias Jua Kali, the caretaker of the houses, said that after Gakii stabbed herself, she fell down next to her lover and that is when they broke the window to rescue the injured couple.
Kimathi said Gakii had only stayed in the house for one month but was cohabiting with the man though he only came at night.
Mukwego Senior Assistant Chief, Bernard Kaburu, confirmed that the two were from a drinking spree when they started fighting at around midnight.
The Chief said that unconfirmed reports indicated that Kaiga was something of a lady’s man with seven children from different mothers.
Ireri Murithi, Gakii’s father said that though her daughter was not formally married to the deceased, he was aware that they were lovers.
“The other day, the two were fighting at my home and Gakii told me that she was not interested in the man anymore,” said Murithi.
Incidences of women killing their lovers are not new, highlighting how crimes of passion are tearing relationships apart, with the knife being the preferred killer weapon.
A few months ago, a video of a woman narrating circumstances that led her to stab her lover at their house in Umoja went viral.
In the film, a seemingly inebriated Vigilance Shigi, 29, was trying to justify why she acted in self-defence against Edward Okello.
The 33-year-old aeronautical engineer at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) died of stab wounds in the chest after he picked a quarrel with his girlfriend on May 11, 2020 and succumbed while receiving treatment at Mama Lucy Hospital. A month earlier, Susan Njeri Waichuiri was arrested for stabbing Kelvin Njenga 11 times after the lovers differed over house chores in Tena estate.
The two differed over who should clean utensils. Njeri who had visited her boyfriend over the Easter holidays was reluctant to do cleaning after super.
A bitter argument followed before Njeri grabbed a knife and stabbed Njenga who died on the spot. Njeri claimed she was acting in self-defence.
But the highest profile case involved Makueni-based lawyer Onesmus Masaku who was brutally attacked by his former police lover, Nancy Njeri. Armed with a machete, the woman cut the lawyer’s both hands. Masaku died two weeks later while receiving treatment at a hospital in Nairobi.
A lawyer was attacked in similar circumstances last year in a suspected love triangle in Nairobi’s Umoja estate.
David Ochieng, 33, was stabbed three times by his lover, Linda Okumu, who had come across a message sent by another woman seeking financial assistance from the lawyer.
A fight ensued when Okumu confronted Ochieng after reading the text. She picked a knife and stabbed the man who was rushed to Mama Lucy Hospital before being transferred to Kenyatta National Hospital after his condition deteriorated.
The country was also left reeling in shock after a 15-year-old girl stabbed her 19-year-old boyfriend to death within Nairobi’s Lang’ata on September 22, 2020.
Locals said the two teens had argued before the girl went for the knife, fatally wounding the Form Two student. The boy was knifed three times in the chest. The aggressor was a Standard Six pupil.
Neighbours said they heard screams from the boy’s house and rushed only to find the deceased writhing in pain in a pool of blood.
It was said the girl was a regular visitor at the house during day time. The boy died at St. Mary’s Hospital where he had been rushed.
In Nakuru, Breswit Wambui was held for killing her lover, 32-year-old John Mungai, who died following stab wounds.
The knife dramas continue even after High Court Judge Jessie Lessit while sentencing Ruth Kamande to death warned lovers against resolving their differences in such a brutal manner.
“Young people should know it is not cool to kill your boyfriend or girlfriend, instead it is cool to walk away from such a relationship when it breaks down,” said Justice Lessit.
In her testimony, Kamande told the court she was concerned the previous night they had engaged in unprotected sex and that she had not used post-exposure prophylaxis the next day to prevent HIV infection.
“Your honour, it pained me to know that the person who I loved and trusted so much was to ruin my life by infecting me with HIV and AIDS,” she pleaded.
Kamande further told the court that their relationship was shaky after she discovered Farid was engaging in multiple affairs behind her back.
“After demanding an explanation over the two love letters I found in his bedroom he became angry, took the two letters and tore them into pieces trying to make me believe that the two letters meant nothing to him,” she claimed.
