Police Arrest Suspect Who Slit Throat Of A House Help
Police on Saturday arrested a man who reportedly killed a woman by slitting her throat in Umoja Estate in March.
Twenty one year old Leonard Kamanga allegedly killed Tabitha Wanjiku, a househelp in Umoja Estate with a kitchen knife and left her lying in a pool of blood.
“The 25-year-old victim, who was a house help at plot number A20, was found by fellow tenants lying in a pool of blood with her throat slit with a kitchen knife, a day after the two kids she was tending were picked by their guardian and was granted some off-duty,” said the DCI.
Police say Kamanga had reportedly fled to Mombasa after the incident to escape arrest only to return to Nairobi on Friday last week.
“Following forensic leads, a team of DCI Buruburu and CRIB detectives earlier pursued the suspect to Mombasa, but he managed to escape only to find his way back to Nairobi yesterday, the 7th of August 2020,” said the DCI.
He was arrested by the team which has been pursuing him.
He is in police custody pending further processing and arraignment.
