Man stabbed to death while separating two men who were fighting in a bar in Nyeri

Today, a fracas between two men at Kieni’s Barrier market in Nyeri county turned fateful when a third man who tried to separate them was stabbed to death.

Thunderstruck marketeers glared in shock at the unexpected horrible scene, when in a sudden turn of events the peace-loving victim fell with a bang, blood spewing from his neck. Joseph Kagwe Wahome, 26, would in minutes be a murder suspect.

Against the odds that locals would not be surprised at on a normal market day, today was different. Kagwe had a kitchen knife which he raised and directly drove into the neck of the victim before he could be controlled .

In their bid to save life, surprised witnesses rushed the victim to Nyeri County Teaching and Referral Hospital, only for him to be declared dead on arrival.

Further inquiry by the police established that Kagwe had at first stabbed his opponent in the belly, before turning the knife to the deceased.

Luckily, injuries on the first victim were not so serious, as he was treated at a local medical facility and discharged in fair condition.

The suspect was confronted and has since been placed behind bars at Narumoru Police Station, being processed for arraignment over the said murder.
