The 22-year old met her death while on duty. Her boyfriend, Peter Munyoki Kioko, 25, who was also her work colleague, allegedly walked in at the popular joint and stabbed her multiple times.
A staff at the pizza joint revealed that Munyoki pounced on his lover after she rejected his love advances.
“She seemed to have rejected the man or had an affair. The woman was always cheerful and the man was introverted. It’s so unfortunate,” said the colleague.
After executing the murder, the suspect attempted to flee but was cornered by an angry mob. He was only rescued by the police who arrived at the scene on time and rushed him to a hospital.
Munyoki has however given a statement to the police saying that the deceased had hurt him deeply. According to him, he resolved to end her life after learning that she was dating one of their managers.
“This is a woman l loved so much. I am even the one who deflowered her. After l learnt of her new relationship at our workplace it hurt me more,” he told the police.
The two had broken up five months ago and he had allegedly been threatening her. Munyoki is currently in custody as investigations into the matter continue.
