David Njenga Fundi was a Kenyan who killed seven people and wounded three others in Mariani, a village near Embu, Kenya some time during the weekend from October 26 to October 27, 1968.

When Fundi, who was described as a drug addict, found his wife had returned to her mother after an argument with him, he took a bow and poisoned arrows and killed his wife, his mother-in-law, his brother-in-law, his two sons, as well as a child they were playing with, and the latter child's father. He also wounded another man, the man's wife, and a child, and then escaped. Fundi was sought by 200 policemen and 1000 villagers for about a week, before he was eventually arrested in a valley south of Embu.[1][2][3][4][5] Fundi was put on trial at the court in Nyeri on March 18, 1969.[6]
