A 35-year-old man was killed on Thursday afternoon after he was allegedly caught pants down with another man’s wife in Kuresoi South, Nakuru County.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the deceased, Edwin Komen, was hacked to death using a machete by the woman’s 53-year-old husband.
The deceased had been invited by the woman into her husband’s house at around 2 pm where they were caught.
“Komen had been ushered into the man’s house by his wife where they were having the time of their lives before they were busted by the woman’s husband. In a fit of rage, the 53-year-old man reached for a machete and descended on the besieged young man mercilessly hacking his head three times, killing him on the spot,” the DCI said in a statement released on Friday.
The woman is said to have fled the scene as villagers milled around the homestead to witness the scene.
“In the ensuing melee, the woman fled the scene to nearby farms and hasn’t been seen again. Villagers who heard the commotion thronged the homestead to have a glimpse of the scene, never witnessed in the characteristic quiet Ukwala village,” said the DCI.
The suspect was arrested and detained at Keringet Police station pending arraignment.
