Man stabbed to death in Nairobi for failing to pay Sh10 for 'mutura'
In a fit of rage the vendor grabbed a knife and stabbed Mwaniki in the heart.
The man, Samuel Mwaniki Njenga from Dagoretti South is reported to have gone to his usual ‘mutura’ joint where he ate Mutura and a potato amounting to Ksh.60.
When he wanted to pay he discovered he only had Ksh.50 hence he requested the vendor to allow him bring the Ksh.10 later on.
The mutura vendor did not agree and in a fit of rage grabbed a knife and stabbed Mwaniki in the heart.
As the deceased fell to the ground and a crowd began to gather, the vendor fled only to later surrender himself to the area Chief’s office from where he was arrested.
Mwaniki was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead after an hour.
His body has been transferred to Kikuyu mortuary.
