A 55-year-old Kenyan man based in Belgium has been arrested after allegedly killing his wife.
Belgian newspaper HLN reports that James Ololo drove to his wife’s house to plead with her to terminate a court case in which she applied for divorce.
James Ololo then refused to leave the residence and ended up engaging in a fight with Elizabeth Wafula Ololo and ended up stabbing her multiple times. Neighburs informed police of the incident, who arrived and arrested him.
Neighbors said James Ololo has been engaging in frequent domestic confrontation with the deceased contributed mostly by alcohol and infidelity.
A prosecutor in charge of the region where Elizabeth was living said James Ololo grabbed a knife and stabbed Wafula several times after a quarrel ensued. “The victim ultimately succumbed to her injuries,” Gilles Blondeau added.
James Ololo and a friend known as Simeon Situma founded a company Kenya Experts Community a few years ago to assist Kenyans relocating to Belgium to establish businesses.
Elizabeth was a business lady and a member of the Association of Kenyan Diaspora in Belgium and Luxembourg and she is known for her charity works such as the Children’s Perfect Hope Foundation.
Close friends of Elizabeth said she had tried to separate with James for two years, but he has increasingly turned aggressive.
