A 34-year-old man succumbed to injuries from a beating he got from his lover’s ex-boyfriend.
A report by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said John Tagei, 34, had gone to visit his lover Loise Kanini at her house on Thursday at around 7.a.m when tragedy struck.
“After a while, Kanini noticed that her son had left his keys at home. She went after him leaving Tagei in the house,” the police report says.
Kanini was confronted by her ex-lover Joseph Macharia while on her way back to the house who demanded to know why she was hosting another man in her house.
“Kanini retorted that following their breakup, she had moved on with her life and the man inside her house had since taken her heart captive,” the report from DCI reads.
According to sources in the police, the 33-year-old Macharia stormed his ex-lover’s house, attacking Tagei who was at the time, relaxing and waiting for his woman.
“What followed was a confrontation that turned ugly, leaving Tagei with life threatening injuries,” the police said.
Tagei was rushed to the Wangige level IV hospital in critical condition by Kanini and other well-wishers.
According to the police, he was transferred to the PCEA Thogoto hospital where he succumbed to injuries.
The crime scene was documented by Kabete based detectives and a man hunt for the suspect who is still at large launched.
