The High Court in Mombasa, Kenya has ordered that an elderly man be detained for allegedly killing his wife. The man is accused of killing his wife for denying him sex.

Kahindi Kazungu,70,  is said to have stabbed his 28-year-old wife in the chest thrice with a kitchen knife in the wee hours of the night.

According to the investigating officer, Charles Namisi, Kazungu walked into the station with the murder weapon and surrendered himself.

Kazungu has been living with his wife Asmah Konde in Jiloni, Changamwe for five years. They run a small business, selling doughnuts.

Kazungu confessed to police that his wife has always denied him sex and mocked him about his performance in bed.

He said that on the fateful night, the wife said that there were younger men who could handle her way better than he could and wanted nothing to do with him.

“She provoked me into killing her. She told me that there were better men who could handle her way better than I did and an old man like me had nothing to offer her,” read the statement by Kazungu.

The two are said to have sired one child, who passed away after falling sick.
