A former Maseno University student was arrested after brutally assaulting his girlfriend who rejected him.

Dorcas Jamilla Ouma, a first-year student of Kisumu Polytechnic was stabbed multiple times by her jilted boyfriend for breaking his heart on Tuesday, 12th November 2019.

Dorcas did not die immediately according to eyewitnesses. She was rushed to the hospital and she named her assailant before she passed.

Her ex-boyfriend was arrested the next day after the assault hiding in a bush.

Days before attacking Dorcas, the boyfriend took to social media to rant about his broken heart.


“Be careful when you love that girl you see on my profile picture. She has killed me. Real love is not there and can never exist,” read an excerpt from the suspects’ Facebook post.

He continued with the rant saying,

“I am the first man in her life but now I stink to her and her family who think I will waste their daughter because I am poor,” he shared online.
