09 June 2015, 11:35 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A 36-year-old man has been killed by members of the public at Karundu village in Mukurweini for beheading his neighbour.

Robert Wachira is said to have gone berserk and attacked his neighbour who was busy tending to his farm.

According to eyewitnesses, Wachira after committing the offense picked the neighbour’s head and carried it around the village.

He then attacked two other men who sustained severe injuries and were rushed to Mukurweini district hospital for treatment.

The bizarre incident left the whole village in shock and disbelief.

“This is a very sad event. We should all pray. Such occurrences should not be witnessed anywhere in our community,” said a resident, James Njagi.
