A Kenyan woman in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates was murdered in cold blood by a Kenyan man after she resisted his romantic advances.
Catherine Waithera Njogu who hails from Gitothua in Ruiru was in Dubai for about a year and a half and lost her life after the jilted man Watson Njiiri stormed into her workplace beating her up and stabbing her. Waithera was pronounced dead on the spot after succumbing to her injuries.
According to sources from Dubai, Waithera and Njiiri had been in a relationship and had broken up. Njiiri had thereafter tried to lure Waithera back but she was not giving in. Njiiri had also been threatening to kill the lady for the past one month.
Njjiri claimed that he had spent a lot of money to bring Waithera from Kenya to Dubai and seemed to want a relationship in return.
Waithera is said to have broken off the relationship and Njiiri saw this as a betrayal after he had brought her to Dubai.
Njiiri is siad to have snapped that fateful day walking into Waithera’s workplace beating her up and eventually stabbing her to death.
The tragic incident stunned the community in Dubai as well as her family in Ruiru.
Her father Joseph Njogu has asked the Kenyan government as well as the UAE government to assist in apprehending the suspect.
