Two male siblings from Kisumu County are on the run after they murdered their father’s pregnant mistress on Wednesday Night.
Area police say the father introduced his lover to his sons and his ailing wife as his second wife, something the brothers did not take lightly.
According to Nation, the 29-year-old victim, Mercy Akinyi, was drinking with the man at a local bar in Nanga, Kisumu County, the man, popularly known as Mwalimu, asked to leave after hours of drinking and asked Akinyi to join him later at his place.
Akinyi is said to have left for Mwalimu’s place around 11 pm, she would never be seen alive again. Sources say Mwalimu’s children attacked her on sight at the compound. “One of Mwalimu’s sons spotted her and attacked her.”
The brother is said to have then alerted the sibling and using a panga and stones they killed the three-months pregnant mistress.
“The worst part was because of the ongoing dusk-to-dawn curfew, Mwalimu had difficulties getting means to take his lover to hospital,” Said a resident of Nanga. “By the time he did, it was too late because she had already lost a lot of blood. She died at the hospital and had deep cuts on the head and neck.”
The two brothers are said to have accused the mistress of wrecking their parents’ marriage. They felt she made their father abandon their ailing mother who has been hospitalized for more than a week now at Port Florence Hospital.
The two brothers are on the run but area OCPD says the police are hot on their trail.
The deceased has left behind a 10-year-old son.
