Nakuru: Man slits wife’s throat after busting her with ‘lover’

Police in Nakuru are looking for a middle-aged man who slit the throat of his wife and seriously injured her lover after catching them engaging in sex on his matrimonial bed.

The incident happened at the suspect’s house on Wednesday night at Kapregerego Village in Tinet Location, Kuresoi South Sub-County, Nakuru County.

According to local Nyumba Kumi Initiative elder, Robert Mutai, Paul Maritim found his wife, Janet Maritim, entertaining her lover at 11pm.

Paul reached for a club and a panga and attacked Janet’s lover, leaving him for the dead. He, thereafter, fatally slit Janet in the throat.

The commotion caught the attention of the couple’s neighbour, who rushed to the scene only to be badly attacked by Paul.

The injured men were rushed to a local hospital for emergency treatment, and later transferred to Tenwek Hospital for advanced medical care.

Paul Maritim’s uncle, Wilson Yetkei, said his nephew was angered that his wife, a mother of seven, had betrayed him.

Paul’s friend, who spoke in confidence, said the suspect told him that he will surrender himself to the police at Keringet post.

Janet’s body was moved to Olenguruone Hospital mortuary.
