KDF Sergeant beaten to death by mob in Utawala after row with couple
A 38-year-old Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) Sergeant was on December 25, 2020 killed by a mob in Utawala, Nairobi, after a row with a couple while walking home from a bar.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the soldier and his brother were on their way home from Fahari Hotel where they had been drinking and making merry all evening.
They reportedly ran into a couple and the soldier greeted the lady, an action said to have angered her better half.
“An argument ensued culminating to a stone-throwing match pitting the couple on one side and the Sergeant leading the charge on the other,” read the DCI report.
The couple, however, upon being overpowered by the sergeant and his brother, raised alarm screaming that they had been attacked by robbers.
“As a result, a mob of six men came to the couple’s aid and clobbered the Sergeant to death. His brother escaped by a whisker,” added the report.
Detectives from the DCI have since arrested five suspects in connection with the murder and they’re expected to be arraigned on Monday.
