Former Nakuru deputy mayor Joseph Munyiri is going through difficult financial times. Others even say as a result, he has gone berserk and violent to his family. Munyiri was recently arrested by police officers in Nakuru East after beating up his wife Joyce Wangui, harming her. It all started fighting after Munyiri went to his wife’s electronic shop in Menengai ward and sold a 32-inch TV set to his friend at a throwaway price of Sh2,000 without consulting her and pocketing the loot.
Munyiri did not record the details of the transactions in the record-keeping book prompting the wife to follow up. Munyiri descended on her with blows and kicks after being questioned, while back at home. He even stripped her naked. Wangui was treated at the Nakuru Mediheal Hospital. She blames Munyiri for always beating her. Ideally, in online reports, there have been increased cases of domestic violence amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
