Nairobi woman admits to killing drunk husband over infidelity claims

A woman who stabbed her husband to death two years ago in Starehe, Nairobi, after he accused her of infidelity has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter.

Charity Wambui Chege confessed to killing Peter Kinyanjui on May 29, 2014 in Huruma, Kambi Moto.

The court heard that the husband returned home drunk and claimed that a man had been answering her phone when he called.

The woman is said to have picked up a kitchen knife and followed him into the bedroom, where she stabbed him in the back.

Ms Chege’s lawyer told the court that the mother of three is remorseful having spent two years in remand.

The lawyer said the accused had also graduated with a diploma in Theology and Counselling. She will be sentenced on July 5.
