Man kills wife and lover after ‘busting’ them in their matrimonial bed

Police in Namanga, Kajiado County have arrested a middle-aged man for allegedly killing his wife and lover whom he caught in their matrimonial bed.
According to eye-witnesses, Samuel Gitonga arrived at his home in Maili Tisa on Friday night and knocked on the door but his wife Esther Ngatha refused to open as she was in bed with her lover Kasimbi Mutuku.
Gitonga who had suspected that the two were having an affair for long forced his way into the house by breaking into a wall and in a fit of rage hacked his wife and lover to death with a panga.
Area Assistant Chief Loise Nkoriki said neighbours called him when they heard commotion coming from the house and when he arrived at the scene he found Ngatha’s body under the bed with multiple cuts.
“I was alerted by neighbours that there was fighting and commotion going on and when I arrived at the scene and entered the house, I saw two bodies. The wife’s body was under the bed with cuts on the head and her lover’s body was thrown outside with multiple cuts in the head and neck,” said the Chief.
Kajiado Central Sub-County Commander police Issa Mohamoud confirmed the incident and warned residents against taking the law into their own hands.
He said that there were better ways of resolving domestic issues rather than resorting to violence.
The bodies of the victims have been moved to Kajiado County Referral Hospital with the accused expected to be arraigned at the Kajiado Law courts on Monday.
