A former MCA in Kakamega County has has shot dead his wife before turning the gun on himself in a bizarre incident.
MCA Richard Muchesia committed the offense in Rongai, Kajiado County on Tuesday evening.
Kajiado North Sub-County Commader Joseph Mwika said that the MCA used his own licensed gun in the killings.
Police have now repossessed the gun.
“Investigations are still ongoing on why it happened, but we suspect the two had matrimonial differences,” Mwika said.
The bodies of the two were taken to the City Mortuary.
The incident has happened just a day after a woman brutally killed her husband and two children before committing suicide.
The woman reportedly attacked her husband David Gitau with an axe while he was asleep before killing her two children and later hanging herself.
Geoffrey Mwangi, the area’s Nyumba Kumi Chairman says that the couple reportedly had domestic issues and he had helped them solve them.
It is not clear what happened last night that led to the heinous incident.
The bodies of the family members were discovered by neighbours who condemned the incident.
