A 33-year-old woman identified as Martha Waithera Kibiru, has been found dead with her private parts bleeding in her in Lakeview estate, after hosting her ‘come-we-stay’ husband.
According to reports, Kibiru was found dead after she hosted her come-we-stay husband of three years identified as Moses Leparani.
‘Come-we-stay’ is a Kenyan parlance used to describe men and women cohabiting without formalizing their union.
It was gathered that the screams from Kibiru’s 10-year-old son, woke neighbours who found his mother killed by her come-we-stay man.
Moses Leparani is reportedly on the run after the incident.
Deputy County Commissioner of Nakuru East, Erick Wanyonyi said Kibiru’s body was found with several physical injuries and with blood on her private parts.
“We visited the scene alongside police and investigating officers where we found the lady with some physical injuries and blood on her private parts. We have been informed that she spent the better part of yesterday with the man who is believed to be her come-we-stay husband, and there are no details of any misunderstanding.
“Moses is said to be a businessman selling maize from Narok and he occasionally visited Martha’s house, but after the incident, he is no nowhere to be seen.”
Margaret Nyambura Ng’ang’a, a resident of the area said; “This morning, my nephew was screaming out and when I went to Waithera’s house to find out what was happening, I found the door locked from outside. I got in and after finding the boy at the bedroom door, he told me that his dad had killed his mother.
“I did not have the courage to check what was happening in the bedroom, but upon calling my other neighbour, she found the body of my cousin lying on the bed and we immediately informed the area chief and called the police.”
