Official autopsy report has revealed new details on what led to the death of Kenya Defence Forces officer Daniel Omollo Onyango who was reportedly bitten by his wife, musician Violet Asale aka Zian Achana.
Onyango died after a fight with his wife during which he was bitten on different parts of his body, prompting investigations to be launched even as his lover gave her version of what transpired on the fateful night.
She stated that tragedy struck as she fought back to defend herself because the husband wanted to suffocate her during their disagreement.
“He wasn’t stabbed and he doesn’t even have a stab wound. He fainted. During the scuffle, I freed myself and left him in the bedroom. When he gets angry he likes throwing things in the house and self-harming.
“He started holding his stomach, I don’t know where he hit himself,” said Asale.
The autopsy report conducted by by KDF pathologists together with the chief government pathologist at the Kenya Defense Forces Memorial Hospital debunked the earlier version that was widely circulated.
The autopsy established that the soldier died of low oxygen concentration in the blood.
According to the DCI, “The 37-year-old officer died in his house at Kahawa Wendani in Kiambu’s Ruiru sub-county when his wife cast her teeth through his thumb, chest and shoulder”.
On the fateful day, the 37-year-old soldier is reported to have travelled from Gilgil Barracks where he was based to Nairobi to confirm claims by his wife that she had hired a studio which they had not agreed to.
A few hours after midnight, a fight broke ouk during which Asale would defend herself and afterwards rush the KDF man to Kahawa Garrison Health Centre in Kiambu County where he was confirmed dead.
Police arrested Asale as the main suspect as investigations were launched.
