Kitengela man stabbed to death in fight over barmaid – VIDEO

The friendship between two men ended fatally in Kitengela on Wednesday evening in a bar after hours of drinking together.

The two, said to be friends, disagreed over a barmaid at Starehe Bar whom they both had an eye for.

According to other revelers, the two tried to outdo each other to win over the woman’s affections. Eventually, one got angry on sensing that he was losing out.

He is said to have used a pocket knife to stab his friend in the chest several times before running away.

DIED ON THE SPOT

The victim died on the spot with members of the public baying for the blood of the barmaid.

Police officers responded in good time to rescue the barmaid from the mob. She is being held at Kitengela police station.

Isinya OCPD Stephen Wenda said investigations have started and urged members of the public to assist police with information.

Moses Sayore, a resident, urged the government to intervene because they are losing many youths to cheap liquor in the area.
