Police in Chogoria Town in Tharaka Nithi County are investigating an instance where a middle-aged woman stabbed her lover after he allegedly refused to sleep with her.

According to a police report, the suspect identified as Susan Gakii stabbed Martin Kahiga, 42, after he refused to spend a night with her in her house.

Later, Ms Gakii attempted suicide by stabbing herself in the stomach. The incident happened after the two came from a date in Polepole market centre in Chogoria Town.

“This led to a confrontation. Gakii, thereafter, picked a kitchen knife and stabbed Kahiga in the right side of his chest,” a police report filed at Chogoria Police Station says.

Ms Gakii later raised alarm, attracting the attention of her neighbours identified as  Glory Mwende, Winjoy Gatwiri and Martin Mutuma.
