Kakamega man, 54, kills 44-year-old wife for denying him conjugal rights

A 54-year-old man from Emukaya Village in Lurambi, Kakamega County has been arrested after he allegedly killed his wife, 44, following a marital dispute Sunday night.

Joseph Boyi Shiro is said to have returned home while drunk,
and picked a quarrel with his spouse, Florence Nakonjio, over allegations that
Nakonjio had, of late, developed a habit of denying him his conjugal rights.

The couple’s child, Sharon Margarita, told K24 Digital that while her parents were
arguing in their bedroom, she heard her father asking her mother to get him

“Shortly, thereafter, we heard mum thudding against the
floor. When we rushed to their bedroom, we found dad hacking mum in the head
with a jembe. He was saying that he would dig a grave that same night and bury
her,” said Margarita.

Florence succumbed to her injuries before she could be taken
to hospital.

The deceased’s brother, Yusuf Nang’abo, said the domestic
wrangles between his sister and her partner were usually mild, but they
recently escalated.

“We are told that he was drunk, when the incident happened.
We are hoping that our sister’s death be investigated, and her husband
arraigned and appropriate punishment imposed on him,” said Nang’abo.

A family member, who sought anonymity, said the suspect and his
wife were recently counselled after Joseph Boyi complained that Florence had
developed a habit of denying him sex.

Boyi was arrested and taken into lawful custody at Navakholo
Police Station as investigations continue.

The body of his wife was taken to the Kakamega County
Teaching and Referral Hospital morgue.
