Shamba boy kills wife, eats body parts

29 November 2012, 14:25 Joseph Mukubwa

A shamba boy working at Wendiga village of Nyeri County Wednesday night went berserk and slaughtered his wife before he eating some of the body parts.

Morris Gituma Mutegi, 23, brutally murdered on his wife Caroline Gatwiri Kinyua, 22 with a machete in a bizarre incident and brutally murdered her before the members of the public lynched him.

Neigbours said the man ate the intestines, heart, kidney, ears and tongue of the wife after chopping off her head.

“We are still to get the body which is said to have been very mutilated. We understand he ate parts of the late. This is a very sad incident,” said a police officer who did not wish to be named.

Gatwiri had just come visiting her husband on Wednesday, accompanied by her two-year-old child.

But around 10pm, the employer Ann Wangechi, 70, heard commotions and screams and on arriving at the scene met the employee killing the wife using a Somali sword and spear.

The members of the public later overpowered him killing him on the spot after saving the child.

Shocked villagers jammed the scene of the incident on Wednesday morning trying to come to terms with the shocking news.

The motive of the killer is yet to be known.

The two mutilated bodies were removed to Nyeri Provincial General Hospital mortuary.

Mutegi hails from Gitige village in Meru County and has been working at Wendiga since March this year.
