Husband batters wife with hammer to death after finding “I luv yu, mwahhh,” text sent to another man

RIDDA

A sleeping mum was battered to death by her hammer-wielding husband after he found a text message she sent to another man, a court heard. Danish Irfan, 22, hit wife Ridda Zanab’s skull so hard with the weapon that fragments of bone were forced into her brain, killing her within minutes.

POLICE investigating the brief disappearance of Embu County Speaker Justus Kariuki Mate in May are leaning on the theory that he stage-managed his kidnap, with the help of three people close to National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.
