Crime scene

Four suspects were on Monday morning hacked to death by residents of Mithuthi-ini village in Kirinyaga County after they were allegedly found stealing livestock.

A few of the villagers, who spoke to Citizen Digital on condition of anonymity, said the suspects are notorious and decided to lay a trap and pounced on them as soon as they showed up to steal goats from one of the area residents.

Confirming the incident, Mwea East Deputy Police Commander Lucas Chebet said the four were “cut into pieces by residents using pangas.”

The deputy police commander stated that two other suspects managed to escape the scene.

Bodies of the deceased were transferred to the Kerugoya Hospital mortuary.
