Naftali Kinuthia the man accused of hacking to death a 6th year Medical student Ivy Wangechi has said he killed her out of frustration for ignoring him.
Eldoret East DCI boss MR Kingi in an interview with Citizen Digital has stated that Kinuthia decided to end the ladies life after she refused to pick his calls
The accused said he used to send the woman some money. The girl, according to the suspect, had told him that she was organizing her birthday party, which would happen soon. He said he sent her some money to arrange the event.
Since then, the woman refused to pick his calls, said the suspect. That is what prompted him to travel [from Thika] to Eldoret. He said he wanted to know why she was ignoring him.
He further adds
When he [Kinuthia] arrived in Eldoret [Monday], the woman continued to decline to pick his calls. He said it got to a point where she switched off her phone.
According to him, that angered him prompting him to look for an axe and kill the girl. We are still waiting for him to give more details after he is discharged from hospital.
Kinuthia’s mother had in a earlier interview expressed her shock after learning of the heinous act committed by her son.
I have never had a problem with him and I was shocked to hear that he did that. He is a calm person and you would not expect such news.
I even told his father and he still cannot believe that it is Njahi who did this.
