In Juja town, Kiambu County, a 39-year-old man fatally stabbed his 30-year-old girlfriend before turning the knife on himself.

According to Phyllis Muthoni, chief of the Juja Sub-county Police, Daniel Mwangi stabbed his girlfriend, an MPESA shop attendant, with a kitchen knife, killing her instantly.

Mwangi attempted suicide by slitting his throat, but police officers from Juja police station intervened and transported him to Thika Level 5 Hospital, where he died.

Police have initiated investigations to find out what caused the 30-year-old woman’s death. However it is thought that the two were fighting over infidelity.
