BY KOOME KIMENCU IN MERU COUNTY.
A middle-aged man was killed on Saturday night at Kiengu Market in Igembe Central Sub-County, Meru County after he bought someone else’s wife a bottle of beer.
The woman’s husband got angry when he checked in at an entertainment joint in the market and discovered his wife, a bar attendant, had received a bottle of alcohol from her admirer.
The woman’s husband brandished a panga and cut off the other man’s head, killing him on the spot.
The suspect, thereafter, escaped to his house, where a mob baying for his blood, stormed and set the house on fire, consequently, killing him.
