A man is on the run after he allegedly killed his ex-lover’s boyfriend.

Police are searching for Joseph Macharia who is said to have attacked Loise Kanini’s boyfriend, John Tagei.

According to the DCI, Tagei had paid Kanini a visit when she left briefly to take keys to her son who has left for school.

On her way there, she met with Macharia who sought to find out why she was entertaining another man.

“Kanini retorted that following their breakup, she had moved on with her life and the man inside her house had since taken her heart captive,” said DCI.

An enraged Macharia stormed Kanini’s home leading to an ugly confrontation.

A badly injured Tagei was rushed to Wangige Level IV Hospital and later to PCEA Thogoto Hospital where he unfortunately succumbed to his injuries.

“Crime scene detectives documented the scene as their Kabete based counterparts launched a manhunt for Macharia, to answer to murder charges,” added DCI.
