A 38-year-old man in Nandi County on Sunday night hacked his wife to death using a panga before hanging himself following a domestic quarrel.



The man from Kapkatet village had separated with the woman who had gone to live at her uncle’s home near Ndalat three kilometers away.

The man waylaid the woman near Ndalat and hacked her several times and fled.

He was later found hanging on a tree at his parent’s home.

The woman identified as Ednah Kurgat, was a mother of three children and was living with her uncle Philip Songok, an Assistant Chief.

Residents said the two had separated last year after a domestic quarrel and efforts to reconcile them failed.

Emily Sawe, the woman’s aunt, witnessed the incident and narrated to the Star how she pleaded with the man to spare her niece.

Sawe said the man did not hear her pleas and turned hostile.

“She slashed her several times on the head and other parts of the body,” Sawe said.

The man later jumped over the fence and disappeared into the bush after the attack

Police who were called to the scene after the incident found a jacket, a mobile phone, and a bottle of Vodka left behind by the man.

Area MP Vincent Tuwei and deputy county commissioner Sammy Makhanu visited the scene and condemned the attack.

“We have had a high number of domestic violence incidents in this area because of high consumption of alcohol and drugs among couples,” Makhanu said.

Tuwei asked residents especially couples to involve elders and church leaders in solving their domestic disagreements.

Makhanu said they would step up the fight against alcohol and drug abuse in the area which has also witnessed high levels of crime

“Killing or violence is not a solution. We should use alternative ways of solving domestic issues like involving elders or church leaders,” Tuwei said.

He said the youth were most affected by the use of drugs and alcohol and many of them also engaged in crime and such violence to resolve issues.

The two bodies were taken by police to a private mortuary at Kapkaren in Uasin Gishu county.

The Inspector General of Police and the Director of the Department of State Services have been ordered to arrest the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen by The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) and produce him in court on the next adjourned date.


Chairman of the Tribunal, Danladi Umar, on Wednesday, issued the bench warrant against Onnoghen following his absence in court for arraignment.

 The Tribunal had at its last sitting on February 4, ordered that Onnoghen must make himself available in court today February 13, for arraignment over alleged failure to declare his assets.

Onnoghen was not in court as at the time the matter came up on Wednesday and his lawyers led by Adegboyega Awomolo, SAN prayed the court to take all pending applications relating to the trial, particularly the issue of the tribunal’s jurisdiction to hear the matter.

Prosecution counsel, Aliyu Umar SAN, however urged the court to address the issue of the defendant’s absence in court for his arraignment before the application on jurisdiction.

In a brief ruling, CCT Chairman recalled that he had insisted that the defendant appear in court today for arraignment and since he was not in court, he left the Tribunal with no choice than to order for his arrest.

He consequently ordered the Inspector General of Police and the Director General of the DSS to arrest Onnoghen and produce him in court on Friday, February 15 for arraignment.
