Student hacked to death!
As earlier reported by 411Kenya, Ivy Wangeci a student at the Moi University met her death yesterday in the most horrific way. Ivy was a medical student at the school. She was in her 6th and last year which means she had a few months left for her to graduate.
Ivy had left the school and was headed to the Moi referral hospital where she was expecting to do her practical examination. However, she did not make it. Her killer is being identified as Naftali Njahi Kinuthia. Apparently, this man travelled all the way from Thika to Eldoret to take Ivy’s life. According to the reports given, this man seems to have prepared for the incident for a while. He carried his weapons which were an axe and a kitchen knife in a sack. The weapons were new which could only mean he had bought them specifically for the task.
Naftali followed Ivy as she was going to sit for her exam, and that’s when he hit her on the head with the axe causing her to fall. He was smartly dressed and the guards at the gate did not think he was capable of such an act hence letting him in. After Ivy fell, he used his knife to slit her throat. He made sure she was dead and then tried running from the scene. Students saw what happened and with the help of boda-boda operators, they were able to catch him. He was beaten up by the people and it only took the intervention of the police to save his life. He was rushed to the same hospital and that’s where he still is.
Rumours were going around about what could have caused the murder. People are still wondering why someone could do that to another person. Some people claimed that it was the aftermath of a relationship gone sour. That apparently, she had been cheating on Naftali and had infected him with HIV. Honestly, it’s not even known where the news came from but it surfaced the internet so much that some people ended up believing the story. However, a close friend of Ivy has spoken up claiming that there was nothing like that, The friend claimed that Ivy was never in a relationship with Naftali. That he was just obsessed with her since childhood and he used to pursue her to the extent of stalking her.
As per now, nobody knows the truth as to what happened but we are hoping that the detectives will soon find out
