A man who went looking for his married lover at her matrimonial home lost his life after an ugly confrontation with the woman’s husband in Takitech village, Narok county.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Julius Kipkirui, 42, met his fate after he knocked on the door of the woman’s house for a steamy session on Thursday at 3:00 am.
Detectives say the deceased crept into the man’s compound and knocked oblivious that he was present at the time.
“Initially, the man of the house who was in deep slumber thought that it was a bad dream but when the husky voice coming through a space between the wooden window persisted, he woke up all ears!”
“Chero, yaat kurget, ane pepis neng’ung (Chero open the door, it’s me your babe) the voice continued. A deafening silence followed as the man who was now seated on the bed digested the words in shock, looking down besides him where his wife lay without making a move,” DCI stated.

The angered man got out of the house and a fight ensued. He attacked his wife’s lover leaving him with serious injuries.
“What followed was a commotion that shook the entire Takitech village as Chero’s husband attacked the man who dared to harvest where he hadn’t sown. It took the intervention of the village sub-chief and nyumba kumi elders to calm down the situation and return things back to normalcy,” DCI added.
The woman fled the homestead to neighbouring farms for safety while her suspected lover was rushed to Kapkatet hospital for treatment but died while undergoing treatment. His body was moved to the hospital’s morgue awaiting post-morterm.
DCI said the suspect was arrested and is currently being held pending arraignment.
