Police in Kikuyu constituency are looking for a woman who allegedly poisoned her husband after discovering that the man had a second family.

The incident happened at Ondiri village and according to the area OCPD Mutune Maweu, the suspect allegedly put rat poison in the man’s breakfast after she found out about the second woman when she happened to overhear a telephone conversation between her husband and the second wife while standing at the balcony of their house.

After consuming the food, the man started writhing in pain while lying on the floor of the sitting room and was found by his seven-year-old daughter. The daughter alerted neighbours who then rushed him to a private hospital and reported the matter to the police.

The OCPD consequently warned residents to seek for diplomatic ways of resolving domestic issues. He added that anyone engaging in criminal activity to vent their anger on their spouse will be dealt with according to the law of the land.

He also asked members of the public to report on the whereabouts of the suspect to the nearest police station so that she can be apprehended to help police with investigations.

The doctor who attended to the man, Dr. Bonface Kimani, said the man had been rushed to the facility in time and he is now out of danger.

A neighbour, Jane Kinuthia, said she was doing laundry when the seven-year-old girl came out calling her while crying. She immediately rushed to their house and found the man forming from the mouth.

“I screamed for help and other neighbours came and we rushed him to hospital,” said Jane before adding that the man’s wife was nowhere to be found.

However the neighbour confessed never to have heard any form of domestic violence in their house prior to the incident.
