Police in Kiambu County has arrested a 26-year-old man, who allegedly killed his girlfriend on Wednesday, February 26, in Ruaka.



Malindi GK Prison in Kilifi County, Tairus Mwangi, is claimed to have murdered  Purity Karwirwa after hitting her multiple times in the head, nose, and back using a hammer.


Tairus Mwangi and 26-year-old Karwirwa dated for one-and-a-half years, and their relationship which began on Facebook, was permeated with unending conflicts, the deceased’s brother, Erick Kimathi said.

He is said to have arrived in Nairobi on Tuesday, February 25, and asked Karwirwa if they could meet so that they could seek out their disagreements.


It was then that Mwangi allegedly reached with a hammer and hit Karwirwa in the head, nose, and back, killing her on the spot. The deceased’s brother says the fatal striking was done five times.


DCI detectives, who smudged the suspect’s phone signal, tracked him down to a bar in Kahawa West on Thursday, February 27. Mwangi was arrested and taken to Karuri Police Station, where he is being held in custody.


A postmortem examination on Karwirwa’s body, which was conducted on Friday, February 28, at the Kihara Level 4 Hospital morgue, indicated that the 26-year-old died from the effected head injuries.


The late family members, including her two brothers, Erick Kimathi and Stephen Kaimenyi, arrived at the Kihara Hospital on Saturday, February 29, to transport Karwirwa’s body to Mwanika Village in Central Imenti in Meru County for burial.

Police say they will arraign the suspect on Monday, March 2.
