A physical fight between a couple ended in double tragedy following both of their deaths in Kangema, Murang’a County.
19-year-old Salome Wambui was killed by angry residents after she stabbed her boyfriend, Kennedy Murimi, following a disagreement over Sh 200 debt.
According to reports, 23-Year-Old Murimi had sold Wambui a phone but she was yet to settle the full amount.
On Wednesday, Murimi demanded for the remaining balance of Ksh. 200 and when Wambui became reluctant to pay the debt, he forcefully took away the phone.
On Thursday morning, a heated argument turned into a physical fight after which Wambui reached for a knife and stabbed her boyfriend to death.
Before she could flee, an angry mob caught up with her and took justice in their own hands.
Confirming the incident, Kangema OCPD Cosmos Wachang’oka said Wambui was lynched on a farm in Wairi Village.
