A Kenyan man, Stephen Nyangeri Mauti, has been charged with manslaughter for allegedly killing his wife, Faith Nyatichi, after she told him ‘he was not good enough’ when they had sex.
According to k24tv, the incident occurred at Kangemi dumpsite within Kangemi sub-county, Nairobi county, on October 3.
A cover report produced in court on October 14, indicated that the deceased visited the accused in Kangemi Hill view area, where they rented a house after relocating from Nyeri where they were staying as a couple since August 2021.
It is alleged that the deceased left her husband to go visit her ‘cousin’ in Kiserian, and after a while, he called her to know when she would be back.
However, she informed him she had travelled to the village.
“On further inquires, the accused was informed that his wife has no relatives in Kiserian and that she had not travelled to the rural area” the report reads in part.
Mauti claimed he asked his wife’s brother who informed him that they do not have a cousin in Kiserian
It was alleged that on October 1, 2021, the accused received a call from his wife promising to visit him since he was unwell.
True to her promise, she visited. On arrival, she prepared lunch which they took together, then went for a leisure walk within Kangemi market and later returned to their home.
The deceased prepared supper, which they also ate together and went to bed.
The police report said the couple had a conversation, but did not reach an agreement since the deceased kept crying so they had sex and slept.
On October 3, they woke up and the deceased prepared breakfast.
As they were taking tea, the accused is alleged to have convinced her not to leave him for another man.
The accused in his statement, noted that after the breakfast he confronted her with the truth that she was living with another man.
He said the woman then started shouting at him that he is not man enough after the night experience.
The accused told the police that he grabbed her and tried to calm her by blocking her mouth to no avail.
Mauti said he thought she had calmed down when she went silent, only to realise she was unconscious.
He called neighbours to rush her to hospital, but she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Bernard Ochoi, Nairobi Senior Principal Magistrate, has ordered a mental examination to be carried out on the accused person, in order to ascertain his mental status before sentencing him on October 17.
