A man attacked his ‘cheating’ wife after trailing her and the lover to a school compound in Awendo town. But the confrontation went terribly wrong.
Tom Nyakongo had long suspected that his wife had an extra-marital affair. He traced his wife, a casual worker at Sussana Academy, after she delayed coming home.
South Kombok chief Beatrice Awuor said Nyakongo “found his wife and her lover having sex at a classroom she is supposed to sweep. The enraged Nyakongo confronted the two lovers and accosted the man,” Awuor said, adding the woman encouraged her lover to “cut the stupid man following me”.
“The lover picked a panga and cut Nyakongo in the leg, before escaping. The woman failed to raise the alarm,” Awuor said.
Nyakongo was rushed to Rapcom Hospital in Awendo and referred to Migori Referral Hospital and later to Tenwek Hospital, Bomet, where he died.
Angry villagers tried to lynch the woman, but police rescued her.
