A 29-year-old man is nursing life-threatening injuries at a Nairobi hospital after he was found in a compromising situation with another man’s wife.
The man only identified as Kangechu and the woman were having a good time yesterday when the man of the house busted them in his bedroom at around 4am.
“Before Kangechu knew what was happening, he was stabbed several times by the man whom he later learnt was the woman’s husband,” said the DCI.
A shocked Kangechu recounted how he met the woman at barizi bar in Donholm, Nairobi, at around 9 pm, where they enjoyed several rounds of drinks celebrating their newfound friendship.
As one thing led to the other, they agreed to crown the night in the woman’s house.
But as they relished the moment at around 4am, the man of the house suddenly returned from a trip he had taken to Murang’a, central Kenya, only to be confronted by a strange pair of shoes at the entrance to his house.
On his way to his bedroom, he collected a strange wallet and a pair of trousers, further confirming his fears that there was an unwelcome visitor in his territory.
What followed was a confrontation that turned ugly, leaving Kangechu in serious condition after being stabbed severally.
The woman also suffered slight injuries on her fingers, as she tried to prevail upon her knife-wielding husband to give dialogue a chance.
Police officers from the Savannah police post responded to distress calls from neighbours and saved Kangechu who was bleeding profusely, from the wrath of the angry man.
They rushed him to a city hospital where he is admitted in serious condition.
Meanwhile, the man of the house remains in custody on charges of serious assault.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
