In a grisly domestic violence incident that has left many shell-shocked, a man in Huruma, Nairobi was allegedly stabbed to death by his girlfriend after a quarrel over what television programme to watch.

According to the Daily Nation, Nairobi County Police Commander Japhet Koome said the 27-year-old woman who stabbed her 25-year-old boyfriend is in police custody.

“The two were in their house when a quarrel ensued over who should take the remote control. The woman then took a kitchen knife and stabbed her boyfriend in the lower abdomen and thigh,” Koome said.

The attack is reported to have been motivated by a disagreement over watching a soap opera, which was airing on one channel or a football match on another channel.

The incident comes on the heels of other numerous domestic violence cases and highlights a wording trend, which the police say is on the rise.
