A 25 year-old bar attendant was stabbed to death in Makutano town, West Pokot by her lover after the two quarreled on Friday night.

Area OCPD Anthony Wanjuu said Becky Ekidor was stabbed on the left side of her abdomen before being dumped by the roadside.


“This was after she was chased away from her place of work by the man who was identified as Cock Barasa,” he said.

“The suspect was drinking at the bar when he all over a sudden turned against the woman. The patrons fled after the suspect removed a knife from his jacket pocket.”

He said Becky managed to escape but was pursued by the suspect who reportedly stabbed her outside the bar.

The body was taken to Kapenguria county hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem.

The OCPD urged all bar owners to be screening their customers before they gain entry into the premises.

“It seems like the suspect had planned to murder the lady because he was armed with a knife while in the bar,” Wanjuu said.
