Cases of infidelity, rape, and homicide have seen a disturbing increase in various regions of Kenya. In a heartbreaking incident, a middle-aged man from Sosioti Trading Center in Belgut Sub-county, Kericho, tragically took his own life shortly after killing his wife in a fit of rage upon discovering her affair.
According to police information obtained by Citizen TV Kenya, the slain security officer received information about his wife’s secret romantic involvement with another man. This news devastated him, and he abandoned his work to confront them in a hotel room, where they engaged in a strenuous discourse. Tragically, the man resorted to using a firearm, thereby ending his wife’s life.
After the horrifying act, the man returned home and left behind a suicide note expressing his pain and lack of remorse. The note revealed his long-standing knowledge of his wife’s alleged infidelity and the unbearable anguish that led him to take his own life.
This distressing incident serves as a stark reminder of the urgent need to address the root causes of violence related to infidelity within relationships. It is crucial to emphasize that violence is never a solution and only perpetuates a cycle of tragedy.
