Police in Njiru sub-County, Nairobi, have launched investigations into an incident where a 34-year-old man reportedly stabbed his estranged wife multiple times before committing suicide.

It is reported that Dennis Musyoka had requested his estranged wife, Elizabeth Munyalo, to bring their daughter to his house so that the two could bond.

"It was established that the deceased had requested his Ex-wife, Elizabeth Munyalo to bring her daughter so that they could bond with her. The lady arrived with the daughter in her motor vehicle (KDE 438R – a Honda Vezel black in color). The father then joined them in the said car," a police report filed at Soweto Police Station on Sunday reads in part.

After entering the vehicle, the deceased is then said to have pulled a knife from a bag he was carrying before stabbing his ex-wife multiple times on the neck. 

"The lady managed to jump out of the vehicle and was rescued by good Samaritans. The deceased then set himself on fire in the said vehicle together with the two-and-a-half-year-old daughter," the report continues.

Preliminary investigations have revealed that the couple had parted ways some time back over domestic wrangles.

Both Munyalo and her daughter are currently recuperating at Mama Lucy Hospital while Musyoka's body has been moved to the facility's mortuary.
