Love triangle link that made woman stab boyfriend 22 times

The beautiful woman who turned violent and stabbed her boyfriend 22 times is being handcuffed on her hospital bed at Kenyatta National Hospital as police continue with man-slaughter investigations.

The 21 year-old woman, Ruth Kamande Wanjiru, stabbed her 24 year old boyfriend, Farid Mohammed, to death in Buruburu on Sunday after allegedly finding a love message on his phone.

Buruburu OCPD Richard Kerich said Mr Mohammed died in hospital while undergoing treatment for the multiple stab wounds on his back, stomach, chest and neck.

Mr Mohammed has since been buried but police are waiting for a post-mortem report on his death.


The woman also sustained stab wounds on her stomach, right thigh and left hand during the incident. She is handcuffed on her hospital bed and is under constant police surveillance.

The landlord, Mr Ndwiga Gatimu, said that he heard the deceased crying for help from Ngarania Court, house number 539 and went to check.

He saw Ms Wanjiru, popularly known as “Biggy” walking inside the house. She however refused to open the door prompting him to call the police.


Police visited the scene and forced the door open. They found blood stains on the sitting room, but when they checked the bedroom, they found the deceased lying in bed, with 22 stab wounds.

Police have sought the help of mobile service providers after the deceased phone was found completely smashed and no data could be retrieved from the shell.

Other exhibits collected from the scene include a laptop, the blood stained knife, blood-stained bed sheets and pillows.
