Man lynched after killing three people

26 September 2013, 16:36

Kisii - A 28 year old man set a hut on fire on Tuesday night, in Kisii that left two children and their mother who were sleeping in it dead.

Eyewitnesses said local villagers pursued the man in question following the incident where upon the suspect was cornered before being beaten up with crude weapons to death.

“The man has been having a long standing feud with the father from the time he married the stepmother,” said a neighbor who had witnessed the whole incident.

The killings brought business to a standstill in the town with residents trying to come to terms with occurrence.

Police could not immediately issue a statement as they insisted that investigations were still in progress.

The father of the deceased man could not immediately comment as he was also traumatized by the event.

The killings come at a time when the government has established sensitization campaigns to teach citizens the importance of working with the police and avoid taking the law in their own hands.

The County has in the past witnessed similar incidents; a worrying, growing trend.
