A third-year female student at Bomet University attacked her lover by stabbing him in the chest after he informed her that their relationship was finished and that they needed to terminate it right away.
The 21-year-old visited her boyfriend in the Sewage residential area on the outskirts of Bomet town with another female companion, according to Bashir Ali, deputy police commandant for Bomet Central Sub-county.
Afterwards, her 25-year-old boyfriend, who is a third-year student at the same university, broke the news of their breakup.
He was allegedly stabbed in the chest by the woman after she apparently became irritated and pulled a kitchen knife out of her underwear. He immediately slumped to the ground.
The other woman she was with stopped her from inflicting more damage and raised an alarm, bringing in additional residents of the estate.
He was saved, and while still unconscious, was sent to Tenwek hospital.
The suspect was detained by school security personnel and delivered to Bomet Central Police Station for questioning.
