Friday, June 26, 2020 – A middle aged woman from Kiogoro Location in Kisii County was nearly lynched by neighbours after she admitted to hiring thugs to kill her husband.
The woman identified as Judith hired three men who hacked her 42-year old husband, Nelson Mogire Nyamao, to death on Wednesday night at their house.
When neighbours heard the commotion and rushed to the scene, they found the deceased lying in a pool of blood next to his bed with deep cuts.
They also found the wife next to the lifeless body looking confused.
Upon interrogating her, she tried to cook up a lie but when they threatened to set her on fire, she confessed that she had hired goons to kill her husband after he attempted to reunite with his first wife, who had left her matrimonial home nine years ago.
According to the deceased’s brother, James Nyamao, his sibling was in the process of building his estranged first wife a house within the compound.
Upon interrogation, the suspect led the neighbours to a thicket near the compound, where the thugs left the blood-stained murder weapons.
Were it not for the quick intervention of the area Chief who called the police, the irate neighbours could have lynched her.
The suspect was arrested while the body of the deceased was transferred to the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary.
Police have also managed to arrest one of the three suspects who killed the man and is being held at the Kiogoro Police Station.
