A man identified as Laiko Osuri, has been arrested for reportedly beating his wife, Beryl Adhiambo Ouma, to death with a belt.
The unfortunate incident was reported to have happened at their Kahawa Sukari home, Nairobi, Kenya.
According to eye-witnessing neighbours who spoke to a local daily, the couple were used to fighting a lot but explained that they were the usual “husband and wife quarrels”.
However, on that fateful day, the deceased reportedly screamed for help for hours but nobody came to her aid.
The father of the deceased, in person of Douglas Ouma said that his late daughter, Beryl Adhiambo Ouma, sent him a “Please Call Me” text on Wednesday night. But he tried to reach her, no one came to the phone.
According to his statement he said,
“My daughter sent me a ‘Please call me’ but I was asleep so I did not hear the phone,” he is quoted by the daily.
Mr Osuri would later call him back and inform him that he and Adhiambo had had an argument.
May the soul of the dead rest in peace, but still we hope even in her death, her killer would get the deserved punishment.
Moreso, this should serve as a lesson to all couples who are used tohot arguments. Be careful and weary of it. May we all not be victims of unfortunate incidences. Amen.
