Toxic affair: Rejection by the woman he was pursuing was more than he could take
For the man identified as Kevin Wokabi, the rejection was more than he could take,opting to end his life .
Wokabi is alleged to have hacked his two sons to death on Friday night in Mwisho wa Lami village in Nyandarua at around 11 PM before hanging himself.
Screams of dress emanating from his home are believed to have been drowned by a heavy downpour on the fateful night.
The heart-broken man is said to have stormed the premises of the woman identified as Teresiah, demanding to see the lady he was in love with.
A witness identified as Steven Muritu confirmed that the Wokabi threatened that Teresiah would only work over his dead body.
Shocked neighbours stated that there was little they could do to save the situation as they were neither privy to Wokabi’s evil plans nor did they hear screams for help as he hacked his sons to death.
The 32-year-old separated from his wife four years ago and had been living with his two sons ever since.
Reeling from the shock, neighbours faulted him for taking the lives of his innocent children.

Spate of murders
The incident happened on the same day that a man in Bomet killed his two sons after he had a quarrel with his wife over maize flour.
Confirming the incident, area Police Boss Alex Shikondi said that the suspect engaged the wife over cash he had given her to purchase maize flour but she did not.
According to Nation, the suspect followed the woman with the two sons to his brother’s house where he killed them, before fleeing.
"Following the quarrel, the suspect's wife prepared food for the family in a hurry and took off to her brother-in-law's house in the neighbourhood to take refuge together with the children," Nation quoted Shikondi.
