Police in Nyandarua Central Sub-County have launched investigations into the brutal murder of a man and his lover at Rurii village, Ol Kalou Constituency on Friday morning.

Initial investigations point to a love triangle and police believe the two were killed in the wee hours of Friday.

The two identified as Mr Michael Mathenge and Ms Elizabeth Wanjiku had severe cuts on the heads and other parts of the body.

A resident, Mr Samuel Mwangi said the body of Mr Mathenge was discovered by workmates who visited the home after he failed to answer their calls.

“Mr Mathenge was a team leader in a group of men involved in Irish potato packaging. His colleagues at work called since morning and decided to visit the home at around midday to find out why he had switched off his phone. They discovered his body in a pool of blood at the table room,” said Mr Mwangi.

They called the police who in the course of collecting their evidence found the body of the woman the residents identified as his lover in a pool of blood in the bedroom.

The victims are suspected to have been trailed from a local bar and were in the process of preparing a late supper when the killers struck.

A meal of beans was still cooking on a stove in the table room. Police recovered bottles of second-generation alcoholic drinks, which they suspect the lovers had taken.

A village elder Mr Bosco Ngigi said the two were once marries but later divorced before they started living together.

“The woman hails from Kinangop constituency. She worked as a hotel attendant and did other casual jobs. She was a mother of three while the man was also married with three children with his first wife,” said Mr Ngugi.

Nyandarua Central Sub-County Directorate of Criminal Investigations Erick Ochieng said initial investigations indicate a love-triangle murder.

Mr Ochieng said that the killers broke the door to gain access the house.

“The killers must have known their way and how to gain access into the room. We suspect they might have traced the two from a bar. Our investigations indicate that the couple was murdered between 3 am and 4 am,” said Mr Ochieng.

He said that after killing the victims, the killers stole mobile phones from the victims.

“We have moved the bodies to JM Memorial Hospital in Ol Kalou Town for postmortem. It’s a tragedy for the woman whose daughter is recovering at JM Memorial Hospital. We have launched our investigations and we are progressing very well,” said Mr Ochieng.

Gospel singer Ruth Matete penned a moving message to her newborn daughter as she marked her first wedding anniversary but without her husband Beloved John Apewajoye who died this year.

 The Tusker Project Fame 5 winner welcomed her bundle of joy in October, seven months after the tragic death of her husband.

In a lengthy Instagram post, in which she also attached a photo of her daughter, Reyna Toluwa’s feet, Matete prayed that her daughter would grow up to serve the Lord.

“Reyna Toluwa my princess. My love. Am not a poet, but the words I write here, are from my heart. I pray for you on this special day. That you will grow to serve the Lord. You will spread the good news of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,” Matete wrote.

She also declared that Reyna’s feet will carry the good news.

“As the Bible says; ‘And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?’ As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’ I declare today, that your feet are beautiful. Not just because they look like your father’s, but also because they will bring good news as the word of God declares,” she added.

 Matete remembered the vows she made on her wedding day, ‘till death do us part’ but she emotionally noted that death took her beloved husband earlier than expected.

“A day like this a year ago, your late father and I walked down the isle. Yes, we didPromised to be together till death do us part. But death came earlier than we expected.  I miss him so much. But am blessed to have you as a gift that he left me with. I don’t even understand how I’ve come this far. It can only be God,” she posted.

Even though it was one of those difficulty days in her life, Matete promised her daughter she would be fine eventually.

“Today may not be such an easy day for mummy. But I promise you, I’ll be fine. I have seen God to be the father to the fatherless and husband to the widow as He has promised in His word. Today won’t be an exception. I know He will help us even today,”  Matete said in the post.

 She ended her emotional message by asking for monetary support as she could not yet manage to resume work after a troublesome pregnancy.

“Friends, our till number remains the same, incase you wish to support us.5495849. Whatever you can, will go a mighty long way as am still not able to work. God bless you friends and please keep us in your prayers,” she added.

He says he has observed that Kenyans are following the protocols and guidelines than any other country he has traveled to during the pandemic.

TV news anchor Anne Kiguta has announced that she would like to share with her fans more about her life.

However, she draws a line on exposing her children to the limelight.

Anne has three children, one from her previous marriage and fraternal twins with Jomo Gecaga.

Responding to a fan who asked her about her babies, Anne posted a photo of her and her twins but blocked out the faces.

In her response she explained,

“Gosh, so many of you have said this… was the number one response. Well, I will have to let you down on that my loves.”

She added,

“I’m rather traditional (believe it or not) so I’m vehemently against it. My babies are are all still too young, including the eldest, to be on social media.”

Anne continued,

“In fact I really regret having posted my eldest at all. Mummy already has a pretty public life. They deserve their privacy.”

But not to break her fans hearts, Anne promised,

“A reference every once in a while but nothing more than that for a long long time.  Hope  you understand.”

In another post she still emphasized,

“That is my son. Quite the charmer. If only I could tell you half of what they say! But all these are are to me sacred moments…really can’t share much more.”

Not to be daunted though, Anne promised to talk about other aspects of her life.
