Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) are investigating the murder of Henry Mburu, 24, who was reportedly stabbed to death during a house party in Embakasi on Wednesday evening.
According to a police report seen by Citizen Digital, on the fateful day, Mburu went to visit his estranged girlfriend Caroline Mutinda, but found her holding a party at her house in the company of two men.
During the incident that happened on the fourth floor of the Charles Mberia Flats, Mburu who- according to witness accounts appeared enraged- demanded to know what the two men were doing in his woman’s house.
In an argument that soon escalated, detectives say that Mburu was stabbed in the neck, although it remains unclear who among the three in the house at the time stabbed him.
Preliminary investigations showed that Mburu- with blood gushing out of his neck- crept down the flight of stairs in what was interpreted as his final desperate search for help.
According to the report, he collapsed at the gate of the flat where he bled out to his death.
Pauline Naliaka who lives in the same flat reported hearing a commotion upstairs and upon venturing out, heard that someone had been killed.
“Upon moving closer, I found out that it was Henry Mburu Njeri”Naliaka told detectives.
Meanwhile, Ms Mutinda and her two guests- William Nderitu and Eshikimu- have been placed under lawful custody as the probe continues.
At the same time, detectives have documented the crime scene as the search for the murder weapon continues.,
