Residents torch shop, houses of murder suspects

24 March 2015, 21:49 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Residents of Vihiga torched shops and a house owned by suspects of murder who had been released by police in Vihiga County.

The protestors, who started their protests at the Chief’s office at Mudungu, first demonstrated to Mudete police station, halting transport along Chavakali-Kapsabet road.

They engaged police from Mudete and Sabatia, and later went to Losengeli where one of the suspects and a co-wife to the slain woman operates a shop, and burnt it.

Then they went to Sabatia Constituency office where the second suspect works and forcefully took her to her house at Vokoli with the aim of lynch her for allegedly taking part in the killing of the first wife to her husband’s brother.

Police, who attempted to end the protests in vain, arrived in time to rescue the suspect whom they drove away in a police vehicle.

In the evening, her house, including all her property and cattle was put on fire.

“The suspects were released on Saturday on police bond. No court sat on Saturday to determine the bond. Why are police allowing murder suspects to walk around scot free?” posed one resident.

Edith Mugatsia was killed on Friday at 1am by three unknown people who invaded her house at Vokoli and chopped off her neck in the presence of her two children. The incident was linked to family wrangles.
