A Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) officer has died after his 27 year-old-wife allegedly bite him following a domestic tussle at their home in Kahawa Wendani, Ruiru, Kiambu County.
Daniel Omollo Onyango was pronounced dead on arrival at the Kahawa Garrison Health Centre, last night.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations had tweeted that the suspect, identified as Violet Asale, had attacked her husband three times. The tweets, which were overdramatic ….The couples’ squabble turned lethal when his 27-Yr-Old wife, armed with her teeth, served him three major bites that promoted him to eternal rest.…..he died after his “wife’s jaws cast her teeth through his thumb, chest and shoulder….. have since been deleted.
“We have noted with regret that one of our tweets earlier today, did not go down well in as far as our human touch, affection and feelings are concerned. We beg pardon as it was not intended and sincerely commit, that it shall not be repeated again. The Admin of the account has since taken the necessary action,” wrote DCI in an apology to the public.
The late KDF officer was a Private at the Gilgil KDF Camp. The origin of the couple’s bloody disagreement was not immediately established. “A tiff over an unestablished matter had raptured into a major ding-dong at midnight, before the lady-Violet Asale-resorted to the unlikely weapon that cut short her husband’s life. Realizing he had developed convulsions and was sliding into his death, Violet rushed her man to Kahawa Garrison health centre, but it was too late to save him,” the earlier statement had said.
Asale was arrested as police launched investigations into the incident.
