Man stabs brother-in-law to death over cigarette

A Kenyan man stabbed his brother-in-law to death after having a misunderstanding with him over a cigarette puff, SDE reports.

Rama Kombo Malau met his death after his brother-in-law Maxwell Mwaingolo allegedly stabbed him with a kitchen knife.

According to the police report, Malau who was a neighbour to Mwaingolo, had gone to borrow a puff when hell broke loose.

Apparently, Mwaingolo was not in the spirit of sharing his cancer stick, something that angered Malau

— and he started to hurl abuses at him in front of her sister.
Mwaingolo was charged with the murder of his brother in-law but did not plead to the charges as the courts directed to have his mental status checked by a psychiatrist.

Police said Mwaingolo stabbed his brother- in-law with a kitchen knife after he abused him in-front of his wife. Mwaingolo out of anger, is alleged to have dashed to the kitchen where he grabbed a knife and stabbed Malau.

An autopsy report is yet to be produced to show how Malau met this death.

The court ordered that Mwaingolo be remanded at Shimo La Tewa maximum prison pending a psychiatrist test at Coast General Hospital CGH to prove he was mentally fit to stand trial.

“The accused shall be remanded at Shimo La Tewa. He shall later be escorted to Coast General Hospital for psychiatrist report and the Deputy Registrar to appoint a state lawyer to represent him,” directed the court.

Mwaingolo is expected to plead to his charges on February 21 2018 when the psychiatrist report will be ready.
