Ruth Wanjiru Kamanda, aged 21, has been charged to court by Kenyan police for stabbing her boyfriend, Farid Mohammed, 24, 21 times to death in Buruburu on Sunday, September 20, after she found love messages from another woman on his mobile phone.
Kamanda, who also sustained stab wounds on her stomach, right thigh and left hand during the incident is being handcuffed on her hospital bed at Kenyatta National Hospital as police continue with man-slaughter investigations.
Kamanda stabbed the Mohammed 21 times on the chest, stomach, neck, back and face. Buruburu OCPD Richard Kerich said Mohammed died in hospital while undergoing treatment for the multiple stab wounds on his back, stomach, chest and neck.
According to source, Kamada found love messages on the deceased’s mobile phone and when she confronted him, he denied knowledge of the sender, this led to an argument between them in the course of which Kamanda was alleged to have picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed Mohammed severally.
She is currently under constant police surveillance.
The landlord, Mr Ndwiga Gatimu, said that he heard the deceased crying for help from Ngarania Court, house number 539 and went to check. He saw Ms Wanjiru, popularly known as “Biggy” walking inside the house. She however refused to open the door prompting him to call the police. Police visited the scene and forced the door open.
They found blood stains on the sitting room, but when they checked the bedroom, they found the deceased lying in bed, with 22 stab wounds.
Police have sought the help of mobile service providers after the deceased phone was found completely smashed and no data could be retrieved from the shell. Other exhibits collected from the scene include a laptop, the blood stained knife, blood-stained bed sheets and pillows.
