• The lovebirds were having a steamy session in the car’s backseat before the man stepped out of the car and collapsed.

Thika police are investigating an incident where a man, 46, collapsed and died after a hot session with a young lover on Sunday night.

The lovebirds were having a steamy session in the car’s backseat before the man stepped out of the car and collapsed.

The duo had parked their vehicle near Kenya Revenue Offices in Thika town.

Thika OCPD Daniel Kinyua said police found the lifeless body of John Gicharu with his trousers half-lowered and his private parts swollen.

Kinyua said his girlfriend aged 25 is the one who alerted the police on the incident, after the man collapsed on her at midnight.

He said the two had an affair for over a year.

“Police officers rushed to the scene and found the deceased lying outside his car while his lover was seated in the backseat,” the OCPD said.

He said the woman is being held at Thika police station to help in investigations.

The cause of death will only be established after the postmortem.

The deceased body was moved to Thika general Kago morgue awaiting autopsy.

Cases of men mysteriously collapsing and dying during or after steamy sessions with their lovers have been worryingly increasing.

In most cases the incidents have been caused by use of performance enhancing pills.

Less than three weeks ago, another man died inside a hotel room after using Viagra in Murang'a county.

Police in a report said Frederick Opiyo, 50, allegedly died moments after he emerged from the bathroom in what police suspect was after he used Viagra.

At the time, he was in the company of a 35-year-old woman, who joined him in the room at around 10pm.

They took supper together - fish and ugali - before the man entered the bathroom and emerged a few minutes later.

Opiyo then asked the woman to retire to bed but the lady asked to shower first.

"While taking a bath, the woman heard the man groaning. She came out of the bathroom to find the nude man struggling to breathe," police said in the report.

It is at this point that she alerted the night guard.

"One used and unused condom were recovered. In the bathroom one packet of Viagra was also recovered," the report read.
