Man set ablaze for attempting to steal boda boda

A middle-aged man was on Sunday set ablaze after stealing a motorbike along Bungoma-Sikata road in Bungoma County.

According to an eyewitness, Martin Sifuna, the suspect had borrowed the boda boda to buy pesticides for his maize before trying to make away with it.

Boda boda operators at the Mureremuko stage were infuriated by the incident resorting to chase after the suspect and roughing him up before setting him ablaze.

His body was picked by police moments later and taken to Bungoma Hospital Mortuary.

The operators directed their anger at the police, who they accused of sleeping on the job.
