Two married men fight to death over a girl


In Uganda, two married men fought each other to death in Oljorai in Gilgil over a woman they were both seeing secretly.

A witness told The Star that neither man knew about the other until Wednesday morning when one found the other having breakfast in the woman’s house.

“The two went for each other using pangas inflicting deep wounds as members of the public screamed for help,” Alex Kirchir, a witness, said.

Kirchir said the two bled profusely due to the injuries inflicted on each other before members of the public came to their rescue.

One of the men had a deep cut on his neck and died on the spot while the other was confirmed dead on arrival at a nearby health centre.

Relatives and friends of the two cattle traders aged over 40 years are yet to come to terms with the incident.

Gilgil subcounty commissioner Ndambuki Mutheki said that police had moved in to investigate the matter.

He termed the incident as odd adding that the investigating officers were seeking the woman at the centre of the incident.

“We had an incident in which two men attacked and killed each other over a woman in Oljorai area and the bodies have since been collected,” he said.
