A nurse attends to Maxwell Ochieng' at Thika Level Five Hospital where he was admitted after attempted suicide

The man who killed 22 year old Kenyatta University graduate at Kahawa Wendani is in stable condition. Maxwell Okoth has been recuperating at Thika Level Five Hospital where he has been admitted since Monday evening with deep cuts in his stomach. He sustained the cuts when he attempted to kill himself moments after he stabbed his girlfriend, the late Edinald Nyainda, a Public Health graduate, 10 times after she threatened to end the relationship while in his house.

Nurses at the facility confirmed that he is in good condition. He has been lying in the hospital’s male surgical ward seemingly lost in deep thoughts while under heavy security.

Okoth’s family, seemingly distraught at the situation has been paying him visits at the hospital but refused to address the media saying they are yet to get a brief on their brother’s condition.

Police said they are investigating allegations that Okoth was an ex-military man.
