The Tharaka South District Criminal Investigation Officer (DCIO) Peter Migisi is admitted at the Meru Level Five Hospital with serious panga injuries after he was allegedly caught having sex with a farmer’s wife.
According to an eye witness the senior police officer was slashed with a panga by the farmer when he found them in his house at Marimanti Town which is also the district headquarters.
Mingisi sustained serious injuries with deep cuts in the head, arms, neck and shoulders.
The eye witness further explained that the farmer had positioned people to spy on his wife Ciciliana Kagendo and when he was informed that they were seen entering his house he delayed and then sprung into action slushing the two with his panga.
According to an eye witnesses, Migisi had gone into the man’s house in Marimanti market and was found in bed with the wife who is also nursing several cut injuries at the same hospital.
The farmer who is a father of three was also accompanied by two other men who assisted him in slashing the couple during the 10.pm incidence.
“The policeman and the woman were rescued from further slashing by neighbors who responded to their distress call”, said the eye witness.
The woman sells coffee and French fries in Marimanti town until night time where he enters entertainment joints and its believed they had met with the police officer before.
However according to the area OCPD Patrick Wambani, the farmer who is a resident of Ruiri in the neighboring Meru County had persistently trailed her on several occasions.
Wambani said the officer did not know whether Kagendo was someone’s wife because she had lived apart with his husband for long.
He said he had assigned several police officers duties to maintain safety in the area and most of them owing to the festive season had a lot of entertainment and some ended up in love affairs.
“We had a lot of entertainment. Many men and ladies were out enjoying themselves and no one could tell who is whose wife,” said Wambani.
He said police are still searching for the man and they believe he has escaped out of the town and gone into hiding.
