It is said love is a beautiful thing but sometimes love is a painful thing. There are people who have endured critical pain that have been caused by love. In some cases, love has led to end of life as people have been killed by the ones they loved and trusted. Here are five women who were killed by people they loved;
1. Joyce Syombua
She was killed by a man believed to be her ex husband. This man who was Kenya Defense Forces officer killed Syombua together with her two children and buried them in a shallow grave.
2. Celestine Muthengei
Celestine was a very happy Mount Kenya University student who had ambitions just like any other students. However, as fate would have it, she did not live to see the fruits of her education as she was killed by her lover. In 2021, Celestine lost her life to knife stabs after a man she had dated for two years and dumped attacked her.
3. Annie Wanjohi
In this 2017 incident, a police constable identified as Simon Njoroge who was in love relationship with Annie shot her dead due to love issues. He then shot himself and later died due to her injuries.
4. Ivy Wangeci
This was like a horror movie as it was executed in a broad daylight in public open. She was a student at Moi university where she was killed by her lover. The murderer trailed her with an axe and hacked her before he was attacked by witnesses. However, he was rescued by police officers.
5. Sharon Obado
This stands out as the most popular and famous murder case that is still even ongoing. The popularity is due to the fact that it involved a prominent politician who was by then holding a public office. Sharon was a student at Rongo University Collage and was accused of having love affairs with the then governor of Migori county Zachary Okoth Obado.
It is alleged that Sharon had gotten pregnant for the former governor and this became an issue for the marriage and she started receiving threats from unknown person who demanded she abort the baby. She would be later found badly murdered in a forest called Kodera Forest in Homa Bay county.
