NAIROBI, Kenya Mar 1 – A resident of Kariobangi was on Saturday morning stoned to death after he killed another man he allegedly found in bed with his wife in Nairobi.
Witnesses told police the assailant left his house at about 8am, but on returning a few minutes later found another man in his bed with his wife.
He grabbed a knife from the kitchen and stabbed the man he found with his wife to death, according to police.
Members of the public who heard screams from the house responded and stoned him to death before police were called in.
Nairobi Police chief Benson Kibue says they have detained the woman at the centre of the drama for questioning.
“It is another nasty case of a love triangle. We have received the report of a man who has been lynched after killing another man,” Kibue said, “We are interrogating the woman to understand what exactly happened, but so far the report we have is that the man came back and found his wife in bed with another man.”
Reports indicate that the man found in bed with the woman is a neighbour who had been having an affair with her.
It was not immediately clear if the husband to the woman was tipped after he left the house or he just decided to come back, or forgot something.
“All these are issues that will come out in our investigations,” Kibue said.
