Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital CEO Wilson Aruasa on Wednesday gave an update on the medical condition of one Naftali Njahi Kinuthia who is believed to have hacked Ms Ivy Wangechi.

Speaking to reporters, Dr Aruasa summarized Kinuthia's condition as severe but stable after undergoing a number of surgeries.

Kinuthia sustained serious injuries to his head after boda boda operators chased him down and stoned him after he took an axe to Ms Wangechi's head outside the health facility.

Dr Aruasa explained that the murder suspect's skull was cracked and there had been bleeding into the brain.

"He suffered a depression skull fracture and bleeding into the brain. Neurosurgeons performed an operation last night to correct that and stop the bleeding.

"Maxillofacial surgeons also repaired, washed and dressed parts of his face and head that had been severely damaged.

"As we speak he is under medication and has continued to receive treatment. He is extremely weak but in stable condition," Dr Aruasa explained.

The CEO added that the patient's father and brother reported to the hospital on Wednesday morning.

Mr Kinuthia is under heavy police protection following his assault by a mob of members of the public even as DCI on Tuesday conveyed that he is in custody.

A statement from the DCI conveyed that investigations into the matter had commenced to determine what transpired between the two leading to the brutal murder.
