Geoffrey Mugo, nyumba kumi chairman in Thome has confirmed the incident saying that the couple was embroiled in recurrent domestic disputes.

Mugu alleged that the bereaved, aged 37, had on several times reported to him about being beaten by the wife.

“A while back the man came to me and reported the wife had beaten him. But after speaking to him for awhile, the man said he did not want to report the matter to the police or chief,” Mugo told a local press.

Preliminary report by Police indicate that the woman, who was a food trader, descended on his sleeping husband with an axe and thwacked him to death.

The bodies of the four were discovered today afternoon after the woman’s customers from a nearby construction site where she sells food raised queries over her whereabouts.

Her customers would later alert Nyumba Kumi chairman who upon going to the couple’s house, found the entire family of four dead.
