A middle-aged man is fighting for his life in hospital after he was attacked by a close friend for allegedly winking at his wife in Maella Naivasha.
The 24-year-old is admitted to the Naivasha sub-county hospital with deep wounds on the head, back and head following the weekend attack.
The two were allegedly having a drink in one of the bars when the suspect turned against the victim accusing him of having an affair with his newly married wife.
A witness, Amos Kamau said that the two were first engaged in a heated war of words before the suspect rushed out of the bar on Sunday evening.
“He came back wielding a machete and ended up slashing his friend several times before members of the public came to his rescue and arrested him,” he said.
Meanwhile, police in Naivasha town are investigating an incident in which a fight between a motorcycle operator and his client over charges left the latter dead.
The passenger collapsed in a heap and died minutes later following the incident in Karai estate along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.
The two were arguing over Sh300 charges when a fight broke out on Sunday evening leading to the unfortunate death with the operator going into hiding.
Trouble started after the victim sought the services of the operator at around 9 pm to ferry him from one of the bars located along the highway to his home.
A witness Joel Kibe said that upon arriving at his home, the deceased could not remember his pin leading to a confrontation with the operator.
“In the process, the operator decided to take the drunken passenger to the Karai police post but they disagreed further leading to a fight,” he said.
He added that the operator left the deceased unconscious only for the body to be found on Monday morning by his kin.
Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru confirmed both cases adding that investigations had kicked off with one suspect arrested in connection with the Maella attack.
“The suspect in Maella attack will be charged in court with grievous bodily harm and have launched a manhunt for the motorcycle operator,” he said.
