A catholic priest narrowly escaped death after he was busted with a married woman at her husband’s home in Makueni on Wednesday, February 5.
Police arrived in time to save the priest from the irate husband – a firearm holder- who already had shot and deflated the Father’s vehicle.
Father Wesonga Maloba of Gatundu Parish was allegedly found with Susan Kivuva by her husband Thomas Kimeu Mulwa at around 4 pm in Kiumoni sub location, Kathonzweni sub county, Nairobi News reports.
Kimeu who is a businessman returned home to find an unfamiliar car parked outside his house. Upon inquiry, his domestic worker informed him it belonged to a Father.
Efforts to call out his wife to open the door for him failed to materialize prompting Kimeu to discharging his weapon and deflating Fr Maloba’s car tyres.
Police reports indicate that officers from Kathonzweni visited Mulwa’s home and disarmed him after Kiumoni assistant chief reported the matter to Kavumbu Police Post.
Kimeu’s Ceska pistol was confiscated with two empty magazines and 13 bullets.
Makueni police commander Joseph Napeiyian admitted he had seen the reports but could not give an authoritative comment since he did not have details of the incident.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations detectives in Kathonzweni are probing the incident.
