The Rugby fraternity is in mourning following the tragic death of Nakuru RFC flanker Mike Okombe.

The 27 year old was allegedly stabbed by his 37 year old girlfriend, Maryanne Mumbi, while attending a friend’s birthday party on Saturday evening.

Confirming the incident was Rongai OCPD Japhet Kioko who revealed that the couple had engaged in a heated argument before things escalated.

“The two had an argument before Ms. Mumbi went for a knife, which she used to stab Mr. Okombe to death," he was quoted by the Daily Nation.

Okombe was stabbed once in the chest and declared dead upon arrival at the Hospital in Nakuru town.

The couple had one child together but were not married.

Ms Mumbi is reportedly still at large following the unfortunate incident.
