The area chief Mr.Boniface Wanjala said the nine year boy had followed the traditional dancers without informing his parents and that the father Mr Khamala Karani took the action the eve of Saturday when the wife was reportedly said to have gone to her parents after a quarrel between the two.

“The man had been quarreling with his wife so when the incident happened the wife was not there. The boy suffered a lot because it looked as if the accused had tried to chop off his hand fingers.” Mr. Wanjala affirmed.

Father kills son for allegedly stealing a phone He associated the incident with the domestic quarrel that the family had been having.

The area chief said it seemed the father had directed his anger to the innocent boy after the wife ran away. Mr. Wanjala however, urged the residents at large to seek farther advice on matters relating to the discipline of a child saying that the matter could have been solved if the culprit had made an effort of seeking advice.

The body of the deceased has been taken to Bungoma referral mortuary as the police officers initiate investigations into the matter.

The father was arrested and taken to Nalondo police station where he is awaiting to be taken to court.
