Slain Actor Jamal Gaddaffi's Girlfriend Jailed Over Stabbing

Slain actor Jamal Gaddafi's girlfriend has been jailed

Grace Kanamu Namulo, a suspect in the murder of actor Jamal Gaddafi

Kanamu appeared before Senior Principal Magistrate, Charity Oluoch but did not take any plea as the prosecution requested to be granted five more days to complete investigations.

Not Guilty

The court granted their prayers and directed that the suspect appears for a mention of the case on December 18. She will be detained at Mlolongo Police Station.


Kanamu had denied killing Jamal and claimed that the slain actor fell on the kitchen knife after an argument they had got heated.

“Mr Gadafi accidentally fell on the kitchen knife when the argument we were having got heated. It’s not true that I killed him," she stated.

According to Kanamu's version of events she had "stumbled upon Mr Gadafi writhing in pain after he fell on a kitchen knife” in the incidence that took place on Tuesday evening.

Those in the know had claimed that the fight started after Mr Gadafi asked the woman why she had been dancing with and accepting drinks bought by men who attended a party she organised at Arks Hotel in Mlolongo, Machakos County.


Sour Relationship

The two, who had been in the relationship for nine months, retreated to a nearby butchery to resolve their differences but rather than reach a solution, the disagreement turned violent.

Reports claimed that Kanamu picked a kitchen knife and stabbed the 39-year-old actor, resulting in the heavy bleeding that led to his death.

Police were looking for two men who informed them that Mr Gadafi had been stabbed as reports indicated that they took the body back to the crime scene after the victim was pronounced dead on arrival at Shalom Hospital.


The body was taken from Nairobi to Mombasa ahead of Mr Gadafi's burial on Thursday.
