When Grace Adhiambo agreed to meet her husband last week on Friday, she thought they were going to sort out their persistent marital issues which had led to their separation.
Her husband Emmanuel Owuor had booked a room at the GNK Hamza Hotel Lodge along Jogoo Road, where the meeting was to take place. Grace arrived at the hotel as planned but did not leave the facility. Her lifeless body was found the day.
According to investigations, her husband ran away after she was sure that the wife had died. Police however managed to apprehend him. He was charged with the murder of his wife at the Makadara Law Courts.
Owuor however says that his wife died from hypertension. He pleaded with the court stating, “Please release me because I’m hurting too. My wife is dead. I did not kill her because she had hypertension and she just collapsed in the room.”
The question is why did he run away? His case is on the growing list of Kenyans who have died at the hands of their lovers.
