Prison warder kills man he caught having sex with his wife

Police in Kitale have launched a manhunt for a prison warder who attacked and killed a man he allegedly caught in a compromising position with his wife.

According to an eye witness, on the material day of the crime, the suspect, Daniel Moru, a prison warden attached to a GK Prison in Kisumu, reportedly arrived at his home at Maridadi Farm in Sabwani Village, Trans Nzoia County and found a man in his house with his wife.

The suspect is said to have called his cousin who is an Administration Police officer and they interrogated the deceased, Isack Awanyi, before hacking him to death. He then fled from the scene.

“It was around 3am when the officer arrived home and caught the deceased with his wife. The furious officer locked the door and made a call to his cousin who came and started questioning the deceased before attacking him with a sharp object,” said Joseph Awanyi.


The witness reported that matter at Endebess Police Station and police officers were immediately dispatched to the crime scene where the victim was found lying in a pool of blood.

The deceased later died as he was being rushed to hospital. The body was taken to Kitale District Hospital Mortuary.

While confirming the incident, Kwanza OCPD Mr Alfred Mogere, said that the deceased had been previously warned to stay away from the officer’s house but did not heed.

“We have launched a manhunt for the two officers who escaped after committing the crime so that they can be arraigned in court,” said Mr Mogere.

The incident comes after an officer in Nyeri County allegedly shot a man several times after catching him in bed with his wife last week.

Early this year, Administration Police officer shot dead his girlfriend in a suspected love-triangle in Wabera village, Isiolo town.
