There have been rampant love killings across the country, which are attributed to lack of proper communication and depression among couples.

On Sunday, Naomi Chepkemboi, a Pwani University student was stabbed severally by ex lover Nicholas Koech after she returned Ksh3,200 he sent for child support.

Speaking for the first time since the Sunday attack, Chepkemboi revealed that she dumped the Kenyatta University boyfriend because he was irresponsible.

“When I told him that I have moved on, he couldn’t believe it. [I terminated my relationship with him because] he wasn’t a responsible man,” said Chepkemboi.

According to Chepkemboi, Koech didn’t care for their new born baby girl, now four months old.

“His parents helped me and the baby for only two months. [After much thought], I saw it unwise to stick with him yet he wasn’t looking after his child. He was the type of a man who would forcefully take my money, when he found me in possession of some cash,” she added.
