Published

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.

India on Tuesday sacked 15 senior tax officials facing probes in corruption cases, sending across a tough message to bureaucrats taking kickbacks for facilitating tax evasion by companies, a government statement said.

Last week, the government had dismissed 12 income tax officials who were mainly facing corruption charges.

India improved its ranking, among 180 countries, by three points to 78th on a global corruption index in 2018, according to the annual index of the Transparency International, an anti-graft watchdog.

U.S to deploy troops aimed Iran threats.

Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan announced on Monday the deployment of about 1,000 more troops to the Middle East for what he said were defensive purposes, citing concerns about a threat from Iran.

Fears of a confrontation between Iran and the United States have mounted since last Thursday when two oil tankers were attacked, which Washington has blamed on Tehran, more than a year after President Donald Trump said Washington was withdrawing from a 2015 nuclear deal.

“The recent Iranian attacks validate the reliable, credible intelligence we have received on hostile behavior by Iranian forces and their proxy groups that threaten United States personnel and interests across the region,” Shanahan said in a statement.

The new U.S. deployment to the Middle East is in addition to a 1,500-troop increase announced last month in response to tanker attacks in May. Washington previously tightened sanctions, ordering all countries and companies to halt imports of Iranian oil or be banished from the global financial system.

Iran said on Monday it would soon breach limits on how much enriched uranium it can stockpile under the deal, which a White House National Security Council spokesman said amounted to “nuclear blackmail.”

The 2015 accord, which Iran and the other signatories have maintained following Trump’s decision, caps Iran’s stock of low-enriched uranium at 300 kg enriched to 3.67 percent.

But Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi said on Monday: “We have quadrupled the rate of enrichment (of uranium) and even increased it more recently, so that in 10 days it will bypass the 300 kg limit.”

“Iran’s reserves are every day increasing at a more rapid rate,” he told state TV, adding that “the move will be reversed once other parties fulfil their commitments.”

The move further undermines the nuclear pact also signed by Russia, Britain, Germany, China and the European Union, but Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the collapse of the deal would not be in the interests of the region or the world.

The nuclear deal seeks to head off any pathway to an Iranian nuclear bomb in return for the removal of most international sanctions.

Britain said if Iran breached agreed limits, London would look at “all options.” Israel, Iran’s arch foe, urged world powers to step up sanctions against Tehran swiftly should it exceed the enriched uranium limit.

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said, however, the EU would only react to any breach if the International Atomic Energy Agency formally identified one.
