Police in Chogoria Town in Tharaka Nithi County


Susan Gakii, 28, from Chogoria Town in Tharaka Nithi County has detained after allegedly murdered her boyfriend to death on Saturday night (February 6).

Susan Gakii claimed to have stabbed Martin Kahiga, 42 after Kahiga refused to spend the night in her house.

Susan Gakii took a kitchen knife on the right side of Kahiga’s chest and attempted suicide by piercing herself in the stomach.

Police say Gakii had Saturday night commanded her lover, whom she had gone out on a date with, takes her to her house in Polepole market centre in Chogoria Town.

Upon arriving at Gakii’s house, the suspect gave a stern warning to Kahiga against leaving the house without sleeping with her.

Gakii said she needed the fleshy needle due to overwhelming thirsty.

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

On recognising the seriousness of her action, Gakii raised the alarm, drawing neighbours’ attention.

Three neighbours, Glory Mwende, Winjoy Gatwiri and Martin Mutuma, accessed Gakii’s house by breaking her window after the suspect refused to open the door.

The neighbours rushed Gakii and Kahiga to the PCEA Chogoria Hospital, where Kahiga was pronounced dead on arrival.

“The suspect’s condition is stable. We will interrogate her after being discharged from hospital,” police said.
