Confirming the incident, area chief Edward Mamwacha said the deceased Stanley Ombati was caught by his wife having sex with his granddaughter on Tuesday.  

"Mr Ombati has been living with his granddaughter for the last two years. On Tuesday, he lured her into the bedroom where he undressed her and engaged in unprotected sex with her before he was caught," said the chief. 

He noted that Ombati's wife returned from Riana Market earlier than he had expected, only to find him naked in bed with his granddaughter.

The administrator said the wife raised alarm, attracting the attention of members of the public who beat up the elderly man before the matter was reported to him. 

"Ombati decided to end his life due to shame. Efforts by residents to rescue him didn't bear fruits because he died before they could get to Nyangena Hospital," said Mamwacha.

The body of the deceased was moved to Nyangena Hospital morgue awaiting burial.
