A young woman was on Sunday allegedly murdered in cold blood by her husband in Githurai 45.
Florence Kaari aged 29 years old reportedly died at the hospital after she was beaten severally on the head with a blunt object.
Kaari’s househelp Ruth Kaimenyi says that the deceased’s husband arrived in the home drunk at around 1 am and kicked her out.
“He came home drunk and asked where his wife was. When I told him that she had not yet arrived, he asked me to get out adding that he will know that this is my house,” narrates Kaimenyi.
According to Kaimenyi Kaari (the wife) arrived 30 minutes later with a friend known as Gakii.
“She found me outstide and asked me what I was doing at the house. I told her that her husband had kicked me out. She then knocked on the door and demanded that the husband opens the door,” she says.
When he opened the door, the two started fighting. Shortly, one of the children who was sleeping in the house rushed outside and told them that the mother had been hit on the head and was bleeding.
“Our attempts with Gakii to stop them were futile. The husband instead started hurling insults on us calling Kaari’s friend a prostitute.”
Kaari’s father says that his son in law called him on Monday morning and told him that his daughter had died.
“I asked him how she had died and he told me that she had taken poison. This is despite the house being filled witj blood stains,” he said.
Kasarani OCPD has confirmed the incident saying that investigations are still ongoing.
