Naftali Kinuthia, the man accused of brutally hacking to death medical student Ivy Wangeci in Kenya, has confessed to the crime. Kinuthia, who appeared in court on Friday, expressed deep regret over his actions and stated that he was overwhelmed by anger over what he described as a failed love relationship.
While speaking in court, Kinuthia said that he had reflected on the incident and realized that there were many ways he could have handled the situation without resorting to violence. He expressed his remorse over the death of an innocent person and acknowledged that killing someone is unacceptable in society.
The incident, which occurred in April 2019, shocked many people in Kenya and sparked a national conversation about violence against women. Wangeci's tragic death highlighted the need for increased efforts to prevent and address gender-based violence, as well as the importance of mental health support for individuals dealing with anger management issues.
The case is still ongoing, and it remains to be seen what sentence Kinuthia will receive for his crime. However, his remorseful confession serves as a reminder that violence is never the answer and that there are always alternative ways to resolve conflicts.
