A woman was stabbed to death by her husband in Emukaba village, Kakamega County after she refused to cook ugali.

Reports claimed that the man stabbed the woman several times all over her body and later tried to conceal the blood and stab wounds by washing the wife’s body before he covered it in a blanket and hid it.

Kakamega Central OCPD Joseph Chebii affirmed that the suspect had tried to commit suicide through poisoning after he was confronted.

“The suspect attempted to kill himself by swallowing some substance suspected to be poisonous and was rushed to hospital for treatment,” stated Chebii.

Neighbors to the 45-year-old man discovered the body of the deceased hidden in the house after they broke into the criminal’s premises while he was at a bullfighting event.

Man attempts suicide over fish

In 2016, a man in Kandunyi constituency, Bungoma County, had attempted to take his own life after his wife refused to cook fish for him.

The man identified as Ibrahim Makokha had locked himself in the house and proceeded to set it ablaze.

Nekesa Makokha, who is the wife of Ibrahim, had remarked that she refused to prepare the dish due to being fatigued.
