Naivasha man tries to kill himself after stabing wife 10 times with a kitchen knife

In a distressing event that shook the Kasarani estate of Naivasha, a man’s frenzied attack on his wife resulted in her tragic demise. The man, in a fit of rage, viciously stabbed his wife more than ten times, leaving her lifeless body soaked in blood. The gruesome incident unfolded in the midst of emotional turmoil, prompting swift intervention.

As the chaos unfolded, the assailant, overwhelmed by guilt or despair, attempted to take his own life using the same weapon. Fortunately, authorities intervened in time to prevent further tragedy, and he was rushed to Naivasha Subcounty Hospital in critical condition.

The community’s shock and grief were palpable as law enforcement officials moved in to secure the crime scene and remove the victim’s body. Anguish and outrage filled the air as residents demanded justice for the heinous act perpetrated by the suspect.

The couple, both in their late twenties, had been employed on separate farms within the expansive estate. However, their relationship soured when the wife discovered her husband’s infidelity, igniting a series of confrontations and escalating tensions between them.

According to eyewitness accounts, the dispute reached a boiling point over the weekend when the wife confronted her husband about his extramarital affair. Despite attempts by concerned neighbors to defuse the situation, the couple’s unresolved issues ultimately culminated in tragedy.

Neighbors were drawn to the scene by the sound of screams, only to discover the wife lying in a pool of blood. Meanwhile, the husband retreated to the bedroom, where he inflicted wounds upon himself in a desperate bid to escape the anguish of his actions.

Naivasha OCPD Stephen Kirui confirmed the grim reality of the situation, revealing that the wife had succumbed to her injuries at the scene. Meanwhile, the husband, now hospitalized due to his failed suicide attempt, awaits legal proceedings for his role in the tragedy.

As the community grapples with the aftermath of this senseless act of violence, questions linger about what could have been done to prevent such a tragedy and how to support those affected by its repercussions.
