Ivy Wangechi, who was killed at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County, on April 9, 2019, by former schoolmate Naftali Njahi Kinuthia
Naftali Kinuthia, who works as a systems administrator at a city betting firm, has been described by his workmates at their Mombasa Road offices as a quiet man who neither smokes nor drinks alcohol and always goes home straight after work.
On April 9th, that wasn’t the case. The 28-year-old drove all the way to Eldoret and brutally dismantled Ms. Wangechi body parts in one of the most gruesome ways possible. The murder weapon was an axe with a metallic handle that he used to slash the victim on the left side of her head.
Its so not practical. Am not trying to say dating or loving some one is bad but keeping it real and talking things out really helps out.Once the relationship doesnt feel right its advisable to achana wisely,haina haja uumize mtu.

We still don’t know what lead to vicious attack. According to Daily Nation, Ms. Wangechi and the suspect met two weeks ago in Thika. Both come from Thika and attended the same primary school, Bishop Njuguna Academy, located within the town.
Naftali Kinuthia claimed Ivy was his lover and the murder took place in broad daylight. The suspect wanted to know why she was ignoring him and then he snapped. He stated, that he invested money and emotions on Ivy but he did not get what he wanted in return (sex). He told police that he sent Ivy money for her birthday party. Naftali claimed she wouldn’t answer his calls after he loaned her money.
