Nandi man kills brother over stolen cow

17 November 2014, 08:13 Dareel Eric

Nandi - A 41-year-old man hacked his brother to death and buried him in a shallow grave before taking off from their home in Kosiagi village, Kimeloi location in Nandi County on Saturday night.

Gilbert Kipkoech is said to have quarreled with his deceased brother, Ronald Kiprono, 36, on Saturday evening over a cow that got lost sometimes back.

According to the deceased’s cousin, Hilary Korir, Kipkoech beat Kiprono mercilessly on the perceived evening and left him for the dead as he accused him of having stolen the cow.

“After the thorough beating, he left him in his house where he came in the morning and found that the man had died. It is when he decided that he could bury the body and run away,” said Korir.

He said that the two had formed a culture of quarreling with one another every other day especially after drinking bouts and when they started quarreling and fighting on the day, no one bothered to go and check what was happening.

“They have been fighting one another over time. It was not a new thing seeing them argue over petty things,” said Elias Kipkemboi, a neighbour.   

Kabujoi police were called into action, where they exhumed the body from the shallow grave that was barely two feet under, and took it to Kapsabet hospital, but Kipkoech remains at large.

Kiprono is survived by two children.
