In a fit of rage, he picked a machete and slashed the victim on the neck, killing him on the spot, before walking to Kipipiri Police Station where he reported incident.

“It seems the boda boda rider had been tipped about the illicit affair,” said Kipipiri Officer Commanding Police Division Charles Rotich.
