A man on Wednesday afternoon stabbed the mother of his daughter to death before committing suicide in their rented single roomed house in Botore, Kisii County.
Geoffrey Aroni, 24, a bodaboda rider was in an incestuous relationship with his cousin Christine Nyananga.
A relative, Mr Ben Ogango, said Mr Aroni called him and asked him to take care of his daughter.
“The man called me and told me to take care of his daughter. I am shocked and can’t believe he had to do this,” he said.
He said the two had been warned against the affair and had been having an on-off affair for years.
Neighbors who heard commotion in the house reported to the community policing chairman in the area, Mr Paul Matoya.
Mr Matoya said he immediately rushed to the scene and found the two lifeless bodies lying on the floor.
“I immediately called the police who rushed to the scene,” he said.
Confirming the incident, Kisii County police commissioner Agnes Mudambi said that the police have begun investigations.
Thebodies were rushed to the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital with police rummaging through the house to establish the motive for the killings.
