  • On Friday, October 22, a 27 year old surrendered himself to a police station in Kajiado County and confessed to murdering his lover, a Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) student. 

    The man introduced himself as an IT intern based in Nairobi's Ruaraka area, and stated that the lady, who was 22 years old, was his lover.

    While narrating the ordeal, the intern stated that on the same day (Friday), he had gone to visit his girlfriend, who was a first year student at the KMTC Oloitokitok campus. 

    He proceeded to say that a quarrel ensued between them, and since they could not come to an agreement, he stabbed her to death.

    The lady fell on the ground after the boyfriend allegedly stabbed her multiple times on the neck before leaving her lying unconsciously on the floor.

    The suspect then went to the Oloitokitok Police Station where he reported the incident and told the officers that he was there to surrender and confess to the crime.

    After the confession, he took the police to the scene of crime at an estate called Kamkunji, which is about 3 kilometres from the station. 

    True to his word, the officers found the body of the lady on the floor, with multiple injuries on the neck and chest.

    According to the police report, there were signs of struggle at the scene, and they recovered the knife that was used in the murder. 

    The suspect has been handed over to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) while the deceased's body was moved to the Oloitokitok hospital mortuary as investigations continue.

    This incident follows just days after the murder of athlete Agnes Tirop, which has attracted international condemnation.

    These events made the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA-Kenya), ask President Uhuru Kenyatta to declare Gender-Based Violence (GBV) a national disaster.
