Two brothers in Homa lynched by irate villagers

01 July 2016, 15:03

Homa – Two brothers were lynched and five semi-permanent family homes in Nyangweso burnt down by irate villagers.

According to Daily Nation eight animals were also killed.

The neighbours led by boda boda drivers were with the belief that the brothers were behind the killing of a neighbour.

Police were forced to stand by and watch the brutal attack as both brothers were dragged to death then set alight.

The victims’ parents narrowly escaped as the group were also vying for their blood.

A report by the Daily Mail UK last week brought to light the rise of attacks on widows mainly by relatives accusing them of witchcraft in order to claim land and property.

Juma Kalume Musunye from Kenya’s coast was attacked by six of her grandchildren who accused her of paralysing their mother’s hands.

 Musunye is one of 19 elderly people who have been branded as witches and have been forced to seek refuge at a centre called Kaya Godoma which care for elderly people who have been pushed out by their families.
