Detectives based in Kwale county are looking for a man who attacked his estranged wife with a hammer and a knife last night, before fleeing leaving her unconscious in a pool of blood.
Caren Namubuya, 29, who was stabbed in the chest and hit on the head severally with a hammer, is lucky to be alive and is recuperating at the Lunga Lunga Sub-County hospital in stable condition.
Preliminary investigations indicate that the two had separated before the attacker James Kimeu, 35, invited Namubuya to his house in a bid to reconcile. However, Kimeu locked the main door with a padlock and turned on her savagely, with a kitchen knife and a hammer.
Neighbours who heard the commotion forcefully gained entry into the house and found the victim lying on the floor in a pool of blood.
The man who is a teacher at Menzamwenye primary school however managed to escape, and detectives have since launched a manhunt for him.
Below are some comments from Kenyans:
Kenyahwe Lemaiyan – “Don’t mention the hospital, please. The evil killer may dress in buibui and return there to finish his evil work. Quick Recovery lady!”
Lawrence Osewe – “A teacher with the HAMMER on the ran after almost lynching his wife’s genitalia for a failed reconciliation. Hardened sleuths known as THE COMMANDOS are just in a matter of clock ticking before they pounce on the suspect.”
Lonah Nanjala – “Mwenyewe alijipeleka slaughterhouse, it reminds me I think it was the last yr when a certain madam was called back with her Ex-husband who pretends to be seriously sick, the lady sympathy sized and left her baby with the house girl, but the man killed this lady and dumped her in a hole, it’s so painful people should be careful if it means reconciliation let it be in an open place and don’t go alone.”
Moureen Leno – “This is a case similar to the one that happened back then, where by, this man had separated with his wife who was a primary teacher also, so this man invited the wife to come in his house so that they cud reconcile, long story short, that’s how this teacher died,please ladies kama ni kupatana na huyo ngulusumu,ambia yeye mkutane in a public place,na kama ni kwake nyumbani,tembea na watu wawili watatu hivi for security purposes, especially if the man is the violent type.”
Teridian Dol – “Love subject should be introduced to schools and colleges and covered in totality. People should be taught how to accept rejection and move. He should be subjected to the same date as the wife to understand fully what he was trying to do before prison”
