Eldoret househelp-turned-lover burns man to death

A middle-aged man was on Saturday burned to death by his lover in Shauri Estate in Eldoret town.
Samuel Njagi is said to have had a domestic fight with his lover Saturday evening, which led to his lover pouring petrol on him while asleep and setting him ablaze.
Neighbours, who responded to Njagi’s screams of agony, rushed him to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) in Eldoret where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Police are in pursuit of the suspect who took off after committing the crime.
According to the deceased’s daughter, Mary Njagi, the suspect was their house help before turning into his father’s lover after the death of her mother.
Mary said that they (she and her siblings) had a frosty relationship with their fathers’ lover who was opposed to their presence in their home.
“She has been mistreating my younger siblings,” said Mary Njagi.
Following the incident residents of Shauri Estate have urged couples to employ civil methods of resolving domestic differences.
