A 42 year old man was yesterday stabbed to death by his 22 year old girlfriend in Pole Pole Market, Chogoria Town, Tharaka Nithi County after what is suspected to be a love triangle.
Martin Kahiga is said to have been out drinking with the suspect, Susan Gakii, his ex- girlfriend and another lady at Chogoria town after which they got into his probox vehicle to head home.
The girl was dropped first but demanded that the deceased should escort her to her house which he heeded to and left the others waiting in the car.
Upon arrival the girlfriend locked the door from inside demanding he shouldn’t leave the house which caused an argument before Susan withdrew a kitchen knife stabbing the said boyfriend on the right side of his chest.
She panicked and raised an alarm which alerted the others who were waiting outside and they responded only to find the door locked but on looking through the window they saw the deceased on the floor with blood writhing in pain.
As they pleaded with the suspect to open the door she stubbed herself in the stomach prompting them to break the door and rushed the two to the nearby Chogoria PCEA Mission Hospital.
The man was pronounced dead on arrival while his girlfriend is stable and recovering in the hospital.
The deceased, a family man, is well known for his escapade with women in Chogoria town and is said to have sired at least seven known children with different women in the small town.
The police have begun investigation into the matter as family and friends of the deceased call for justice over his death.
