Woman killed by rowdy mob for having affair with a 63-year-old man
Police in Nyatieko located in the town centre of Kisii County are investigating an incident where a 51-year-old woman was allegedly murdered by rowdy youth who accused her of having an extramarital affair with a 62-year-old neighbour.
Ms Catherine Nyasiebuka Osiemo, 51, was assaulted alongside the man identified as Mr Aloys Onyiego after the youth stormed inside the house of the latter where they had locked themselves inside.
Unfortunately, Ms Nyasiebuka was badly injured and the youth who had planned to take the two to the Kianyakwara village elder’s home decided to hand her over to the house of Ms Josephine Kerubo who is her cousin.
“On realizing that the lady was seriously injured they carried her to the home of her cousin where they dumped her,” the report read in part.
Ms Kerubo then picked her cousin up and took her inside the house where she placed her on the bed.

The next morning, Ms Kerubo wondered why Ms Nyasiebuka had not woken up and went to check on her only to find her dead.
“Police officers from Kisii Police Station then rushed to the scene after receiving the report and the deceased was found to have sustained serious back and head injuries,” the report read in part.
Mr Osiemo is currently admitted to the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital where he is receiving treatment.
According to the police, Mr Osiemo had serious injuries on his right eye, back, left ear and both of his legs.
Detectives attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) then went ahead and nabbed two suspects identified as Mr Wycliffe Sage Onyigwa and Mr Daudi Matoke.
The body of the deceased was photographed and removed to the same hospital morgue awaiting an autopsy.
