A 19-year-old high school dropout was arrested for killing her boyfriend for infidelity.
Jacklyn Wawira reportedly dropped out of Junior High School 2 to have a relationship with a 25-year-old man named Eric Gitonga.
Young Wawira is said to have had a violent argument with Mr. Gitonga over suspicion of infidelity when he came to visit her grandmother.
The argument is said to have turned into a fight in which she grabbed a kitchen knife that she had stabbed him with.
To confirm the incident, Stephen Okal, the police commander of Mwea West subdistrict, identified the deceased as a gas station attendant.
“We managed to find the murder weapon and the lady is being held at the Kiamaciri Police Station,” he said.
He also announced that further investigations were ongoing to learn more about the incident.
