Suspected thief burnt to death, body dumped at garbage site

19 September 2016, 19:57 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - A suspected thief has been lynched by residents of Kiawara slums in Nyeri town and his body dumped at a garbage site.

Area OCPD Masai Makau said initial reports indicated that the man left prison recently over a robbery case.

He said the man, whose identity was not immediately established, was cart puller in the town.

The suspect was nabbed by residents while trying to break into a house who stripped him naked, tied both his hands and set him ablaze using tyres and petrol.

“Cases of theft and house break-ins have increased in this area. Some suspects get arrested and later freed by police and we get discouraged. We are also living infear mostly at night because robbers can storm any time,” said James Kariithi, a resident.

Police, while discouraging residents’ action of taking law into their hands, collected the body and took it to Nyeri County referral Hospital mortuary
