Police in Bungoma County yesterday arrested a woman who allegedly killed her husband over Ksh 1,000. The woman claimed that the husband, Ronald Wekesa had stolen from her Ksh1,000 which he had decided not to return.
It is believed that the 53-year-old man reportedly returned home drunk on that particular day and the wife demanded for her Ksh1,000 accusing him of using the money on alcohol.
Citizen reported that, the fight ensued before the woman hit the man with a blunt object on the head and cut him on the leg with a panga. Patrick Kakai, the couple’s neighbour explained the incident, “His wife called me to see how she had punished Simiyu for using her money to drink. At first, I thought he had only been cut on the leg but when I moved closer, his head was lying on a pool of blood and he was also breathing heavily.”
“We called an ambulance but as soon as it arrived we realized that my brother had passed on. We only carried his corpse,” Simiyu’s brother Bonaventure Wekesa explained.
