Man killed after being found in bed with another man’s wife
A 35-year-old man has been killed after he was found in bed with another man’s wife.
In an incident that left villagers of Ukwala in Keringet, Kenya’s Rift Valley shocked, Edwin Komen, met his death in the most unlikely manner, at around 2pm yesterday.
Earlier, Komen had been ushered into the man’s house by his wife where they were having the time of their lives before they were busted by the woman’s husband.
In a fit of rage, the 53-year-old man reached for a machete and descended on the besieged young man mercilessly hacking his head three times, killing him on the spot.
In the ensuing melee, the woman fled the scene to nearby farms and hasn’t been seen again.
Villagers who heard the commotion thronged the homestead to have a glimpse of the scene, never witnessed it in their village.
The area chief Peter Langat termed the incident unfortunate and called on the villagers to be law-abiding and not take the law into their own hands in such circumstances.
Meanwhile, the suspect is currently in custody at Keringet Police station, being processed for arraignment.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
