Husband Stabs Wife To Death In Kenya Atfter Misunderstanding

Following a failed reconciliation attempt on the nightclub where she worked, an East African man killed his wife.

According to information gathered by Mandy News, the event took place on Thursday, October 13 at a neighborhood nightclub in Maai Mahiu in Naivasha, Nakuru County, Kenya.

MandyNews.com has learned that the man made an attempt at suicide after killing his wife.

According to a statement issued by Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the husband stormed Club 8 where his wife worked as a janitor and beat her following a domestic dispute.

The suspect’s wife, Veronicah Wanjiru, had just arrived at the entertainment complex to start her duty when the event took place.

Owner of the club Elizabeth Wanjiru told the police that Veronicah was cleaning the club when her husband entered and begged her to resolve a problem they had the night before.

However, despite his persistent requests for Veronicah to take him back, she stood her ground.

The suspect, realizing that his wife had lost interest in him, dug into his pockets for a vegetable knife, stabbed his wife several times in the neck, and immediately killed her.

The report from Kenyan police stated;

  • “A man stabbed and killed his wife this morning in Naivasha, following a misunderstanding over an undisclosed matter.
  • After committing the act, the man whose identity could not be immediately established turned the killer weapon to himself in a bid to take away his life.
  • In a heart breaking incident that occurred at Club 8 located in Maai Mahiu, the deceased identified as Veronicah Wanjiru, had just reported at the entertainment joint where she worked as a cleaner, when tragedy struck.
  • Her husband had walked in and requested that they settle a misunderstanding which had occurred the previous night.
  • According to the bar owner Elizabeth Wanjiru, Veronicah was busy cleaning the premises when her husband walked in and pleaded with her that they settle matters and she takes him back, but a seemingly unamused Veronicah would hear non of it.
  • It is after endless pleading that the boy child realized that his wife was no longer interested in him that he reached for a vegetable knife hidden in his pockets and stabbed her several times on the neck killing her on the spot.
  • He then turned the knife to himself and in a powerful thrust immersed it in his ribs in a bid to take away his life. Luckily, he survived the self inflicted injury and is currently admitted at Maai-mahiu hospital in critical condition.
  • Detectives based at Naivasha have taken up the matter and are looking forward to the suspect’s recovery before charging him with murder contrary to Section 203 as read with Section 204 of the Penal Code.

Please, if you and your wife or anyone else disagree, try to sort things out politely. If that doesn’t work, contact law enforcement instead of taking the law into your own hands.
