First of all, Ivy Wangechi was a 6th year Medicine student at the Moi University in Eldoret. During his testimony to the Eldoret East DCI boss Ali Kingi, Kinuthia claimed he had invested a lot of money and emotions in the woman. However, his love and financial kindness was not appreciated as per his expectations hence the reason as to why he killed the Moi University Student Ivy Wangechi.
According to The DCI chief Ali Kingi, Ms Wangechi’s parents knew the suspect, even more, has been their family friend for long. In contrast, numerous heartbreaks and frequent disappointments is what made Naftali Njahi Kinuthia, 28, kill his girlfriend.
“The accused said he used to send the woman some money. The girl, according to the suspect, had told him that she was organising her birthday party, which would happen soon. He said he sent her some money to arrange the event. Since then, the woman refused to pick his calls, said Kinuthia. That is what prompted him to travel [from Thika] to Eldoret. He said he wanted to know why she was ignoring him,” said Eldoret East DCI boss Mr Kingi.

“When he [Kinuthia] arrived in Eldoret [Monday], the woman continued to decline to pick his calls. He said it got to a point where she switched off her phone. According to him, that angered him prompting him to look for an axe and kill the girl. We are still waiting for him to give more details after he is discharged from hospital,” said Mr Kingi.
“He said it wasn’t his first time coming to Eldoret, and that he used to visit her often in the past. He said he visited her last Friday, and their meeting was brief. According to him, the girl told him that she was going to her residential place to take off her professional attire. She told him she would be back. However, upon reaching her residential place, the woman switched off her phone, effectively blocking her planned meeting with him.
He said that also provoked him into returning to Eldoret[on Monday] to try speak with the woman.Upon returning to Eldoret yesterday, the man said he felt despised by the woman when she refused to pick his calls. From our sources, the suspect bought the axe and knife in Eldoret. They were sharpened in Eldoret. We’re yet to interrogate him further. Once he is stable, he will be taken to court,” revealed the Eldoret East DCI chief.
The girl’s parents said they knew Kinuthia very well since he used to visit them often, and was a family friend. However, tgey were so much shocked as to why Kinuthia killed Ivy since they knew each other since childhood. CHEKI VIDAA
