27-Year-Old Joyce Achieng Omondi who stabbed a 19-yr-old KCSE candidate after a tiff between them on Wednesday night is in custody. The 10pm incident that occurred at Kamagambo area in Migori’s Rongo sub county was reported by members of the public whose efforts to break into the house where the suspect had locked herself up after the incident proved futile.
The deceased, a male student at Kuna Secondary School, was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment, but succumbed in the wee hours of Thursday. The suspect only opened her doors after police arrived surrendering herself and the kitchen knife she had used to stab the victim. With her in custody, detectives are investigating the motive behind this killing.

In a separate incident in Kiambu County’s Gatongora area, George Oduor Ouma was also fatally on Wednesday night, in a fight between him and a female 17-yr-old neighbour.
Ruiru-based detectives who rushed to the scene learnt that the deceased, aged 28, a tenant at Utugi estate had knocked at the girl’s house, requesting to be guided on how to top up airtime in his Telkom line. He had found her in company of another lady, both preparing supper after closing their grocery shop.
Having been assisted, the suspect-who appeared tipsy-would not leave for his house, prompting the 17-yr-old to push him out while trying to lock the door behind him.
Vexed by the unceremonious riddance, Oduor had grabbed the girl by her neck, pushing her into a corner. As the melee ruptured into a serious scuffle, the startled friend shot out calling for help from the landlord, after her efforts to separate them bore nil.
Meanwhile, the overpowered girl got hold of a knife that lay by her groceries stock, with which she stabbed her opponent through his intestines, killing him. She has since been arrested and undergoing legal procedures, as detectives further investigate the matter.
