The police arrested Susan Gakii for allegedly stabbing her boyfriend to death after he refused to sleep with her in Chororia town in Tharaka Nithi country. Susan is said to have stabbed her 42 years old boyfriend Martin Kahiga for refusing to spend the night in her house.
She drove a kitchen knife in the right side of Kahiga’s chest thereafter, attempted suicide by stabbing herself in the stomach. Police say Gakii had demanded that her lover, whom she had gone out on a date with, takes her to her house in Polepole market center in Chogoria town, that Saturday night.
Upon arriving at Susan’s house, the suspect is said to have warned Kahiga against leaving the house without sleeping with her, this led to a confrontation argument thereby resulting into murdering of Martin.
On realizing the gravity of her action, Susan raised the alarm, attracting neighbors’ attention in which three of these neighbors, Glory Mwende, Winjoy Gatwiri and Martin Mutuma, stormed the Susan’s house by breaking through her window after the suspect refused to open the door.
Gakii and Kahiga were both rushed to the PCEA Chogoria Hospital, where Kahiga was pronounced dead on arrival. “The suspect’s condition is stable. We will interrogate her after she’s discharged from hospital,” police said.
