Dan’s fiancée, Cinta Nyambs was found in the pool of her blood with multiple stabs in her chest, neck and stomach.
Dan, as he was fondly called, was a motorcycle taxi operator from Tayari in Molo town, Nakuru County Kenya. Cinta, on the other hand, was a graduate of Primary education from Bondo Teachers’ Training College. They both got engaged in the year 2016.
Residents confirmed that the hot argument between the lovers was heard the night before from their rented house.
According to one of their neighbors, Andrew Marwa, he said the scream of Cinta was heard around 7 pm on Monday but that the residents were not able to assess the house through the main door which was not easy to break down because it was made of steel.
Marwa added: “At first, I thought the woman was screaming due to a robbery attack, only to be informed that Dan had killed his girlfriend before taking his life.”
Another neighbour of Dan, Silas Awiti, said: “The house was a mess; several broken clay cups were spread in the room; a strong smell of the pesticide had filled the air.”
The two lovers were already dead at the time the residents gained access into their house.
The cause of the killing and suicide was not unknown as Dan left a suicide note which indicated that Cinta was having a love affair with another man.
The suicide note reads in part:“I love her so much she cannot date another man while I’m still alive. It is so stupid of me to do this (commit murder, suicide), but why should I live?”
A village elder in Molo, Paul Itume who expressed concern over the frequent cases of lovers committing suicide and murder in the town said if the neighbours had responded earlier to Cinta’s scream she could have been saved.
The Elder advised lovers to resolve their differences amicably and not through violence.
The Deputy County Commissioner of Molo, David Wanyonyi, confirmed the incident and said the death of the lovers came as a result of love gone sour.
