A pastor in Nyamira County on Tuesday, October 5 allegedly killed his wife before committing suicide in an incident that has left many locals shocked.

George Abisa in a suicidal letter seen by K24 Digital alleged that his wife had infected him with HIV/AIDS following her affair with a local politician currently campaigning for Bogichora MCA seat.

Abisa says he had done an HIV test and turned out positive.

It is said that on Tuesday evening, the couple indulged in a heated argument over the matter after rumours surfaced of their alleged secret affair with the politician.

“He questioned her over the rumours that were going around about the alleged affair with the politician before stabbing her with a kitchen knife,” Hellen Moraa a local stated.

Soon after killing his wife, he penned the suicide note before taking his own life.

Currently, no burial arrangements are taking place as the two bodies lie at the Nyamira County mortuary.

Detectives in Bogichora have already launched investigations into the matter with plans underway to summon the said politician.

When reached for comment, Nyamira County Commissioner Amos Mariba declined saying:

“For now, we do not have a comment about the matter."
