‘Beb Umeniua,’ Last Words of a Campus Girl

Lincoln Abraham Ng’iendo has admitted to brutally killing Elizabeth Kiloko Ntheti at their Kasarani home two years ago. Lincoln Abraham Ng’iendo had started a relationship with Elizabeth in 2016.

At the time, Lincoln was a driver while Elizabeth was a student at Kenyatta University where she was taking a course in hospitality.

Their relationship was troubled and riddled with break ups and makeups. According to a report that appeared in the Daily Nation on Tuesday, Elizabeth had moved from the university hostels and started living with Lincoln in Mirema, Kasarani.

In 2018, Lincoln relocated to Nakuru, where Elizabeth would visit him over the weekends. When he lost his job in Nakuru, Lincoln moved back to Nairobi and started staying with Elizabeth.

Elizabeth would sustain him with the little money she got for upkeep from her parents. In July 2019, Lincoln got a job as a cooking gas supplier and the two lovers moved to Kimbo in Kasarani.

It was then that Lincoln started coming home drunk in the wee hours of the night. They would fight, he’d lock Elizabeth out in the cold, then they would kiss and makeup. This cycle of violence went on until October 2019.

“Lisa informed him that a relative who was studying in the USA would visit and spend the weekend in their house. And because her parents were not aware of the union, she allegedly asked him to go to Nakuru for the weekend and return when the relative had gone.

He allegedly obliged but on his return, he snooped into her mobile phone only to discover that she was chatting with a man in Mombasa and had even shared photos. The relationship hit the rocks once again but they reconciled after a while,” the report in the Daily Nation said.

On October 21, 2020, they fought again. Elizabeth went to the kitchen and emerged with a knife. “

His word is that as he struggled to snatch it from her, she fell. He took the knife and stabbed her in the left side of the neck. She bled to death. Her dying words were, “Beb umeniua”. He allegedly replied, “I know”. He then showered, changed his clothes, covered her using a duvet.

By then, she was still as he paced the room. He later gave out his TV set to a shylock for Sh. 21,000 and used the money to hire a taxi as he planned where to dispose of the body. At around 10pm on October 22, he removed the body and drove all the way to Ruiru, doused it with petrol and set it on fire. He went back to the spot the following morning, at 5.45, and discovered that the body had partly burned,” the report said.

The body was later discovered by the police and taken to City Mortuary. It was later disposed off at Lang’ata Cemetery as an unclaimed body.

On October 25, Lincoln cleaned the house and burned Elizabeth’s clothes and books. He deposited their couch at shylock’s, got some money, and ran away to Tanzania. After arriving in Tanzania, Lincoln decided to make a U turn for Kenya. He was however arrested by Tanzanian authorities and sentenced to seven months in jail.

On June 3, he was released and escorted to the Namanga border. After crossing into Kenya, he traveled to Athi River where he spent the night at a friend’s house. On June 4, he traveled to Nairobi and went to Kimbo where he and Elizabeth had lived. He found the police waiting for him. he was arrested and arraigned in court.

Lincoln, who has confessed to killing Elizabeth, is being detained until August 5 as the police complete investigations into the murder he committed. Detectives have also applied to exhume Elizabeth’s body to compete investigations.
