A family in Nyeri is still in shock after a body of their missing kin was found in a water tank.

The body of the woman identified as Sarah Wairuri aged 47 years was recovered in a 3000-litre water tank at her home.

The woman went missing four days ago in Kiruga village, Nyeri County.

According to reports, the deceased’s daughter informed the family that an unpleasant smell and flies were coming from the tank.

This forced the family to alert the authorities, who, on checking, recovered the body.

The family now wants police to speed up investigations to unravel the mystery surrounding Wairuri’s death.

Recently, there has been an outcry over an increase in the femicide cases across the country.

The most recent cases are the gruesome murders of Rita Waeni, a JKUAT student who was butchered at an Airbnb apartment in Roysambu, and Scarlet Wahu, a socialite who was murdered by John Matara at an apartment in South B.

A 28-year-old pregnant woman will spend 30 years in jail for killing her drunk husband following an altercation.

Nyeri High Court Judge Abigael Mshila on Thursday handed the sentence to Emily Mukiri after she pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter.

The offence was reduced from murder after plea bargaining with the prosecution.

She admitted killing her 34-year-old husband, Francis Mwiti Mukio, on the night of August 16 and 17, 2018 at their home in Muthinga shopping centre in Tetu, Nyeri County.

Mukiri stabbed the man in the abdomen and in the face with a knife following a domestic quarrel.

Mr Mukio arrived home drunk at around 1am, sparking a violent confrontation with his wife.

Mukiri picked a kitchen knife and stabbed her husband, who was a miraa trader, multiple times in the abdomen and the face.

She later left him in the house bleeding and went to the shopping centre.

Hours later, Mr Mukio received a phone call from a police officer attached to Muthinga Police Station informing him that his wife had been arrested for disorderly conduct and that he should bail her out.

It was at that point that the man informed the police that he had been assaulted by his wife at their home.

He succumbed to the stab injuries at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital.
