Tragedy as Juja man kills lover then stabs himself to death

A spat between two lovers ended in a tragic loss of two lives after the man killed the woman and them stabbed himself to death.

According to witnesses, Daniel Mwangi Wairimu, 39, had earlier visited his girlfriend Jane Njogu at her Mpesa shop within Juja shopping centre, where the two clashed over an unestablished matter.

The tiff went on until the lady who is believed to be in her early 30s closed up her business, then the two proceeded to the lady’s house at Palyjote Apartments in Juja.

Minutes past 10pm, the woman was heard screaming and when neighbours responded they were met with a horrendous bloody scene.

Mwangi is said to have driven three knife stabs into his girlfriend’s back, and a fourth one through her belly.

Shocked neighbours who thronged the scene found her body in a pool of blood, and were too late to save her life.

After the deadly attack, Mwangi reportedly turned the knife on himself, driving it through his neck.

In an attempt to save him, members of the public rushed him to hospital but he succumbed to profuse bleeding on the way.

Police are investigating the incident and the bodies have been moved to Thika General Kago Funeral Home awaiting autopsy.
