Asela better known as Zian Achana by her stage name is an upcoming Kenyan musician and has released few songs such as I love you, Gimme Love, Falling in love and Nimechoka.

The crooner had relocated from her home and rented a one-bedroom apartment in Mirema Drive, Kasarani where she put her studio and office.

The husband was against the idea of her renting a house outside their home because he never knew how she paid the house’s rent.

The couple, as reported by their neighbours engaged in a heated argument over Achana’s new house at around 1am and a few minutes later screams came from the couple’s bedroom.

“We did not know what they were arguing about but they have lately been having domestic issues,” one of the neighbours told the Nation.

Detectives also revealed that Onyango’s relatives rushed at the scene when they heard noises from the couple’s bedroom.

Achana is reported to have called for an ambulance from Kahawa Garrison Health Centre while the soldier’s aunt and sister tried to get a vehicle to rush the man to hospital.

“Because they could not wait, they opted to use the soldier’s car. As they drove him to hospital, they met the ambulance and had the nurse check on him. She pronounced him dead and asked them to return home with the body and call the police,” a source told the Nation.

According to reports Achana bit Omollo on the left thumb, left hand, right side of the chest and at the back of the shoulder.

“So angry was the soldier that he refused to take dinner, which led to an argument and a fight in which the wife bit the deceased at the finger, right side of the chest and back of the shoulder,” a detective told the Nation.

According to reports, the KDF soldier had developed convulsion and was rushed to hospital but unfortunately passed on upon arrival.

“His wife asked them for help in resuscitating him but they could not do much. He was already convulsing,” the police said.

“Realising he had developed convulsions and was sliding to his death, Violet rushed her man to Kahawa Garrison Health Centre but it was too late to save him. His body was cold and without a pulse,” DCI George Kinoti tweeted.
