A 46-year-old man has been hacked to death by his secret lover, Makueni County Police Commander Joseph Ole Napeiyan has confirmed.

Police said that the deceased, Justus Manthi Kyengo, visited his secret lover, Christine Wanza Mutie, also aged 46, at her matrimonial home on Sunday, April 4, at about 11 pm.

"They are said to have disagreed over unknown issues resulting to her attacking the deceased with a panga [machete] assisted by her son, namely Nicholas Mutinda Mutie aged 20 years," the police report read.

The man's body was found in the compound of his secret lover near their homes' gate by the police.

Police said the man sustained deep cuts on the neck, head and left hand.

The weapon suspected to have been used during the attack, a blood-stained machete, was recovered inside the woman's house.

The incident occurred at Mukimwani village in Kalimoni Location, Makueni County.

According to the locals, the husband of the suspected killer lives in Nairobi while the deceased's wife also works in the capital city.

Residents claim their love affair was publicly known and the altercation between the two wasn't the first.
