Man Kills A Woman Claiming She Turned Into A Ghost
A 59-year-old man in Zimmerman has turned himself up to police in Nairobi County's Kasarani neighborhood claiming to have murdered a woman who had turned into a ghost.
According to Anthony Mbogo, the head of the Kasarani local police force, the murder suspect, Wangethi Chege, showed up at the police station on Tuesday and requested that officers go pick up the deceased's body.
The suspect told the police chief that he met the deceased at a nearby entertainment venue and then brought her to his home.
“Alipokuja akasema walipatana eneo moja la burudani hapa Zimmerman,” the police boss said.
Loosely translated ‘when he came he said that he met her at an entertainment joint in Zimmerman’
Then, he claimed that the deceased had become a ghost and that he had stabbed her repeatedly in the head and back.
“Alisema ule dada aligeuka akakuwa kama ghost, ama zimwi na likaanza kufanya ni kama linamkula, lakini sisi tuliona ni kama tu anajitetea,” he added.
The deceased's body has been moved to the City Mortuary while the detectives launch an investigation into the incident.
Police officials found two knives that they believe the suspect used to perform the crime.
Furthermore, the suspect has been detained by the police, as he awaits arraignment in a court of law.
