Man arrested for killing neighbour who had affair with his wife
Gideon Kiptanui crushed Julius Kipkirui after he came knocking at his wife's door minutes past 3 am asking her to open it.
Police in Takitech village, Bomet County, have arrested a man who reportedly killed his neighbour for allegedly having an affair with his wife.
Gideon Kiptanui (not his real name) is said to have crushed Julius Kipkirui, 42, after he came knocking at his wife, Chero's door minutes past 3 am asking her to open it.
Unbeknownst to Kipkirui, Kiptanui had arrived at his wife's homestead earlier in the day and was asleep when he was woken up by his husky voice coming through the window.
"Initially, the man of the house who was in deep slumber thought that it was a bad dream but when the husky voice coming through a space between the wooden window persisted, he woke up all ears!
"Chero, yaat kurget, ane pepis neng’ung (Chero open the door, it’s me your babe) the voice continued. A deafening silence followed as the man who was now seated on the bed digested the words in shock, looking down beside him where his wife lay without making a move," DCI reports.
The silence from Chero prompted Kipkirui to knock again at the door, with the husband jumping out of the bed with furry before attacking the neighbour .
"What followed was a commotion that shook the entire Takitech village as Chero’s husband attacked the man who dared to harvest where he hadn’t sown. It took the intervention of the village sub-chief and nyumba kumi elders to calm down the situation and return things back to normalcy," DCI adds.
The badly injured intruder was rushed to Kapkatet Hospital where he, unfortunately, succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment.
After the incident, Chero fled her home while her husband was arrested and is currently being held at Abossi Police Station.
