In Kenya, a youthful teacher from Mwea in Kirinyaga County is fighting for his life in hospital after he was on Wednesday slashed in the head, arms and fingers by a male colleague.
The victim and the suspect â€” both teachers at Karoti Girlsâ€™ High School â€” were eyeing the same woman, an intern on teaching practice, their colleagues alleged.
The rivalry came to a head Wednesday, with the two confronting each other.
The suspect is said to have reached for a panga and hacked his love rival in the head, arms and fingers.
Police’s Daniel Kitavi, said the blood-soaked victim was rushed to a local hospital for urgent treatment, whereas the attacker was arrested.
â€śWe are conducting our investigations to establish what caused the fight. However, the teachers we interrogated at Karoti Girlsâ€™ High School said the pair had fallen out after realising they were both interested in the same woman; an intern on teaching practice at the school,â€ť Kitavi toldÂ K24 Digital.
