A bar attendant on Monday stabbed her husband to death at Kiawara Township, Nyeri County.

The woman identified as Alice Wangu,30 had separated from the now deceased husband, Samuel Mwangi, 39, over domestic issues.

But the husband, who had moved to a different house, decided to pay her a visit, Monday evening but found her with a new man prompting a violent confrontation between the three.

Ms Wangu then picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed her estranged husband near the heart, killing him instantly.

She then alerted neighbours and even confessed to the crime.

She was later arrested and detained at Kiawara police station.

Kieni West OCPD, John Kemboi confirmed the incident.

“We are aware of the matter and further details will be shared as soon as we complete our investigations,” said Mr Kemboi.

Barely three weeks ago another man was stabbed to death in similar fashion by his wife at Kanyagia, Kieni West over domestic wrangles. The wife was also a bar attendant.
