A woman killed her husband at Kinamba Estate in Naivasha on Christmas Day after a quarrel. Witness Jane Waithera said the man spent the day drinking and staggered home at midnight.
"The two started arguing and a fight broke out forcing neighbours to intervene," she said. "The woman was accusing the man of drinking instead of buying his family Christmas gifts."
As neighbours separated the couple, the wife grabbed a knife and stabbed the man on the neck before fleeing. Efforts to rush the man to hospital were futile as the father of two succumbed to his injuries minutes later.
Naivasha police boss Charles Kortok said the woman was arrested two hours after the incident. "The woman is in custody. The body has been taken to the Naivasha District Hospital mortuary," he said. Meanwhile, a man was lynched in Naivasha town after he was accused of being part of a group that stole a motorcycle.
