A middle aged man yesterday Thursday September 2, 2021 succumbed after sustaining serious injuries following a savage attack from a lover’s former boyfriend in Kiambu County.
Reports from the Directorate Of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Officers indicate that the 34 year old man John Tagei had gone to visit his lover Loise Kanini at her house around 7 am on Thursday when the unfortunate happened.
Kanini then realized that her son had left his keys in the house and decided to follow up with him leaving Tagei relaxing in the house.
“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 would then the intercepted by her former lover John Macharia 33 who demanded to know why she was again hosting a man in her house on her way back to the house.
Having moved on with her life Loise noted in the police report that her love had since been transferred elsewhere a thing that seemingly never augured well with Macharia.
“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.
The aggrieved Macharia then stormed Loise’s house thereby attacking the unsuspecting Tagei who was at home then waiting for his woman to return thereby inflicting injuries on him.
“What followed was a confrontation that turned ugly, leaving Tagei with life threatening injuries,” the police said.
Owing to the nature of his injuries, the victim was then rushed to the nearby Wangige level IV hospital in critical condition by Kanini and other well-wishers, for quick and timely medical attention.
His condition got worse, and he was later transferred to the PCEA Thogoto hospital where he unfortunately succumbed to his injuries later.
The crime scene was secured and documented by the Kabete based detectives and a man hunt for the suspect who is still at large has since been launched.
The body of the deceased was transferred to the mortuary awaiting post mortem to establish the real cause of his death.
