This event is similar to another that happened on Tuesday night in Kibera where a man was also stabbed to death after he found him walking with his wife.

In Pangani, a man aged 20 years fell off the 11th floor of a building and died on the spot on Wednesday. Police said they were investigating circumstances that led to the fatal fall.

In a separate incident, passengers lynched two suspected gangsters who had carjacked their public service vehicle.

The incident occurred at the Utalii drift on Thika road on Wednesday night.

According to police, the two young men aged between 25 and 30 years armed with toy pistols had posed as passengers before they turned out to be robbers.

During the commotion, the driver lost control of the matatu which landed in a ditch but no one was hurt.
