NAIROBI, KENY – Kyale villagers in Kilungu, Makueni County on Monday woke up to the shocking news that two brothers allegedly killed a man suspected to be their mother’s lover.
The deceased was identified as a 52-year-old Kiendi Kivuva, who was reported to be having an affair with 50-year-old Angelica Masavu, who is also a mother of five.
The incident took place on Sunday evening at Kamwanyani market after the deceased was confronted by one of the suspects, Kyalo Masavu, who confiscated his mobile phone.
“The deceased was confronted by one of the woman’s sons who took his phone and went away with it,” Colleta Ndunge, a neighbor said.
On Monday night, at around 1:30 am, the two sons are said to have attacked Kivuva while in their mother’s house with blunt objects where he sustained serious injuries.
“When the woman saw Mr. Kivuva being assaulted by her two sons, she called a neighbor who came but declined to offer them assistance since the man was almost dead. He proceeded back home,” said Colleta.
The body was later found dumped in a deep gulley with serious injuries on head and hands.
Kilungu Deputy County Commissioner Rebecca Ndirangu who confirmed the incident said police had arrested the two brothers and their mother in connection with the murder.
“Following the incident, police are holding three suspects at Kilome police stations as investigations continue,” said Ms. Ndirangu
Anjelica’s husband was away in Nairobi where he works during the incident.
The body of the deceased was collected and taken to Kilungu Sub-County hospital mortuary.
