A lecturer at a Kenyan University has been arrested after allegedly beating his wife on new year’s eve after they argued over a phone call made by another woman and ultimately causing her death the following day (Jan 1st).

Local media reported that Dr Fredrick Onyango Ogolla, a lecturer at Strathmore Business School, appeared before a magistrate at the Kibera Law courts Wednesday morning .

He however did not take a plea as police sought more time to complete their investigations.

Dr Ogolla is suspected of beating Margaret Gobi Mwachongo on the evening of December 31, 2017 at their Lavington home, leading to her death.

The charge sheet says the couple had quarreled before engaging  in a physical fight.

“It is suspected that they had a very bitter argument after a phone call by another woman to her husband,” a source told KSN on Wednesday.

Following the altercation, the woman sustained serious injuries.

“She was taken to hospital unconscious after that evening fight but she succumbed to her injuries,” a senior police officer is quoted by Daily Nation as saying.

A day before her death (December 31, 2017),  the woman had posted a photo  on her Facebook page  and captioned it “Welcoming 2018 with  joy and happiness”.

After the incident, Dr Ogolla took to Facebook and wrote the following:  “To my friends on FB, what happened was too painful that I have been unable to believe and that’s why I didn’t update you, my lovely wife left me and went to the lord. It’s so hurting in as much as it is hard to express. Rip my love.”

Nation reported that the couple had a seven-weeks-old baby.

According to the paper, Dr Ogolla has been serving as the Academic Director of MBA programmes, Director of the Institute of Strategy and Competitiveness and senior lecturer of Strategy and Decision Making at the Strathmore Business School.

‘He is also a part-time professor at various universities and colleges in and outside Kenya and works as a consultant on strategy formulation, strategy execution and change management,’ wrote the Nation.

Friends and family took to social media to recount the last days spent with Margaret, with most of them expressing shock and grief at her sudden death.

“We spoke on 31st December. You were gone on 1st. But why is the world so evil! Why are people so heartless? And what is to become of your 6-week-old baby. Oh Bex Becky (her name on Facebook) rest with the angels. May justice be served,” a friend, Ruth Ambogo, wrote.
