  • A Kenyan man confessed to police how he stabbed, burnt and disposed of his girlfriend's body before fleeing the country.

    Lincoln Abraham Ng’iendo confessed to detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to killing Elizabeth Kiloko Nthei, a Kenyatta University student.

    According to the Nation, Nthei moved out of the school hostels when she met Ng’iendo. The suspect would later move out of Nairobi after he secured a job in Nakuru. However, he lost his job and relocated back to the city where the KU student would take care of him.

    After losing his job Ng’iendo turned to alcohol and he and the couple would fight over his drinking problem. He admitted that the relationship turned abusive.

    On October 21 2020, Ng’iendo told the police that Nthei walked into the kitchen with a knife and wanted to stab him but as they struggled with it the suspect took it and stabbed her in the neck. He took a shower then wrapped her body in a duvet.

    Ng'iendo stated that he sold his TV for Ksh21,000 because he was in need of the money for the second part of his plan. On October 22, he removed the body and drove to Ruiru, doused it with petrol and set it on fire.

    He posed as a kidnapper and called Nthei's mother and asked her for Ksh45,000 or he would kill her but the parents never sent the money. Ng'iendo went back to the house cleaned it and burned Nthei's belongings before fleeing to Tanzania.

    The suspect stayed in Tanzania for a while but on his way back to Kenya immigration officers arrested him and he was jailed for 7 months before being freed and escorted to the Namanga border. 

    Police arrested him when he went back to Kimbo, in Githurai where he stayed with Nthei. This is where police arrested and charged him with the murder after he confessed.

    In a similar case, on Tuesday, July 27, detectives from the DCI nabbed the suspect behind the murder of the University student Christine Ambani. Detailing how the murder plot was executed, DCI stated that Christine left her home planning to meet her boyfriend for a date in Githurai. 

    The suspect, Kalio Makokha, was the deceased's girlfriend and booked her in a room in Githurai where he later stabbed her until she bled to death. 

    According to the DCI, Makokha proceeded to impersonate his dead girlfriend and sent a message asking family members to send her Ksh87,000 claiming that she wanted to refund her boyfriend (Makokha) for the money he had spent on helping her settle in college.
