According to the church members, Pastor Elisha Misiko of Ground for God’s Gospel 3G Ministries in Bamburi drew knife and stabbed his wife, Ann Mughoi in the back and on the hand leaving her with severe injuries while they were seated together at the pulpit.
The pastor then turned the same knife on himself and committed suicide by slitting his throat.
According to police, after the incident, the pastor was found with a 17-page suicide note detailing marital disputes with his wife with prior information indicating the couple was embroiled in a property tussle.
