Deputy principal of Siksik secondary school in Chesumei constituency, Nandi County was yesterday stabbed to death by his wife over a family conflict.

It is reported that the two, Gideon Kemboi 34 and Sharon Kemboi 27 have been having family issues for the last few years.

"Quarrel, fights, and screams have been the order of the day in the couple's family for some time now. They have never had peace in their home," Tecla Jerotich said.

According to reports, the wrangles within the family began after the wife suspected the deputy principal was having an extramarital affair.

Following the conflict between the two, Sharon reportedly took a kitchen knife and stabbed her husband in the chest.

Gideon died of high bleeding while he was being rushed to the hospital.

The suspect has since been arrested by the police and is currently being held at Kapsabet Police Station where she is awaiting to be arraigned in court.

"The police officers arrested the woman as well as took her husband's body to Kapsaret county hospital mortuary," Jerotich said.

The criminal investigation team have started investigations into the matter to establish what caused the incident.
