After the person who reportedly hired him to perform the crime failed to pay him Ksh. 20,000, a guy from Vihiga County admitted to stabbing and killing a 43-year-old woman.

At Mbale Police Station, the suspect handed himself in and confessed to killing the woman, who was only given the name Kahongeri by the police, on Sunday of last week. In the Sabatia Constituency’s Sahini Village, the incident took place.

The suspect told police that he stabbed the woman in the neck before leaving her at an abandoned structure, according to Vihiga County Commander Benjamin Ong’ombe.

However, the immediately detained suspect withheld the reason for the murder, which he claims was approved by a different woman.

Police arrived at the scene, first skeptical of the man’s statements, only to find Kahongeri’s dead with the murder weapon still lodged in her neck.

The woman who is suspected of having launched a hit on Kahongeri is currently being held by police, and the deceased’s body has since been transferred to the mortuary of the Vihiga County Referral Hospital.

Investigations regarding the allegedly bad deal are still going on.
