Kenyan man allegedly kills his wife for returning home late


A 29-year-old Kenyan woman identified as Florence Kaari, has been allegedly k!lled by her husband for coming home late.

The woman d!ed while receiving treatment in the hospital after her husband hit her with a blunt object on the head on Sunday night, December 4, 2022 in Githurai 45.

The matter was reported by Ruth Kaimenyi, who was working as a house help for the family, that the man arrived home drunk around 1 am and inquired where his wife was.

“He came home drunk and asked where his wife was. I told him that she had not arrived, and he told me to get out of the house as he threatened me stating that I was supposed to know,” Ms Kaimenyi told the police.

The house help said that 30 minutes after she was kicked out of the house, Mrs Kaari arrived while in the company of a friend who she only recognized as Ms Gakii.

Mrs Kaari did not take the threats that were issued to the house help seriously and opted to go and knock at the door.

However, her husband was waiting for her and once he opened the door, the duo started fighting.

The two; Ms Kaimenyi (house help) and Ms Gakii (friend to the deceased) tried to stop the couple from going on with the fight, but the man turned violent and started abusing them as well.
