‘Why lie to my dad yet you have already killed me’ Beryl Ouma’s last words

It has been weeks since Beryl Ouma a clinical officer was allegedly killed by her husband Lyko Junior at their Kahawa Sukari home during a domestic squabble.

The couple who wedded in 2017 had been living together since Lyko returned from Qatar where he had been working as a taxi driver.

In a past interview Beryl’s father Douglas Ouma had said that the last messages his daughter sent were at very odd hours of the night and after calling back she never picked up.

Douglas said his daughter sent him three messages asking him to call her back at around 4 am, but when he called back after some time, the calls went unanswered.

“I didn’t see the texts immediately, but when I called back, she did not pick. A few minutes later, her husband called to say they had an altercation,” Ouma said.

It has now emerged that before her death Beryl was able to speak to her dad though not one on one.

“When I finally managed to reach her husband after calling Beryl several times in vain, I heard my daughter saying in the background, ‘Why are you lying to my father when you have already killed me,”

When he heard my daughter complaining, he hung up the phone on me and never picked subsequent calls I made to his phone,” recounts Douglas

Beryl Ouma was strangled to death while she slept – Postmortem reveals

A postmortem carried out on the body of Beryl Ouma has concluded that she was strangled to death as she slept and hit with a blunt object.

Beryl was allegedly killed by her husband Lyko Junior Osuri at their Kahawa  Sukari home. He is still in police custody as investigations continue.

 The report also revealed that Beryl had serious head injuries as a result of being hit by a metallic object at least six times, but that was not the cause of death.

Three pathologists – Joseph Ndung’u, representing Beryl’s family, Charles Muturi, representing the suspect’s family, and Government pathologist Peter Ndegwa – conducted the postmortem.

Lawyer Evans Ondieki, who spoke on behalf of the family and the doctors, said that the pathologists were unanimous in their verdict that Beryl was physically strangled.
An interview heard by Classic 105 alleged Beryls death was not an accident
“The doctors said this could not be an accident or treated as self-strangulation, and that it cannot be self-inflicted,” said Mr Ondieki, who was present during the postmortem.
He said the conclusion was that Beryl was killed and that it might not have been done by only one person.

“We do not want to speculate; what we want is for the police to charge the suspect because the killers are known. Let them be taken to court and face the law. The family wants justice.”Ondieki said

Why Kenyans don’t intervene in neighbors domestic fights

When your next door neighbors fight turns violent, what do you do? This formed part of the Classic 105 morning conversation.

Today’s morning conversation was based on why neighbors do not intervene to help when their neighbors are involved in domestic squabbles.

The conversation was based on the recent death of Beryl Ouma who was murdered at home. Witnesses said she was screaming for help for hours, but no one turned up to help her. Sadly she died after she was strangled to death.

Maina Kageni could not wrap his head around why every one has become so emotionless to a point of ignoring other people’s problems.

Here is what callers had to say on the issue

“4 years ago I was in that situation I was beaten for two hour na nilikua kwao and no one came to help.”

Another adds

“The main reason why we don’t intervene is sometimes you try to intervene but the door is closed from the inside and when dawn comes they turn things against you.

They will start saying that you are the reason they are fighting so the only thing we can say is kila mtu apambane na hali yake.”

Another caller who has been a victim of domestic violence says

“I am a victim of domestic violence and the only person who would come to help is my son, we were living in apartments and no one helped.

There is a time he was beating me yet I was pregnant, only my son intervened.”

Anothers adds

“One day my dad was beating my mum and a neighbor intervened ile kichapo alichapwa  ilikua serious.”

Just when you think you have heard enough another caller says

“Maina if you have never lived in a plot you cannot know the things we go through, there are different screams, one is during violence and one is because they are enjoying their conjugal rights.

We cannot differentiate  between the two.”

Another caller admits that his friend was killed while trying to intervene in a case of domestic violence

“My friend had rental houses and one day he went to collect rent and while at it he heard a couple fighting so he decided to intervene.

After breaking the door the husband forgot he was fighting his wife and followed my friend with a knife.

The man stabbed my friend to death just because he tried to help. Personally I cannot intervene the least I can do is call the police.”
