He tried to escape on a boda-boda but he was cornered and beaten up by the angry mob before police came to his rescue.

Unconfirmed reports indicate that the two were dating and it’s not clear why Kinuthia decided to kill her.

The horrifying incident that unfolded in broad daylight has left students from across the country condemning the brutal act.

Reactions include:

Anthony Manyara I on behalf KUSO fraternity, strongly condemn the senseless murder of Ivy Wangeci a sixth-year medical student at Moi University. The climate of terror and social pressure within comrades vicinities where our lives are subjected to a stream of threats calls for all relevant authorities to address the instrument of imposition and coup de grâce to comrades nationwide. We are infringed beyond verbal expressions. May the culprit rot in jail.  Shine on your way comrade – may her soul rest in eternal peace.

Baraka Brian surely these are the last day’s predicted in the Bible men have become much evil and cold-hearted.

Nyambuh Johns Sad may she rest in paradise
