A six-year-old nursery school pupil has been mauled to death by stray dogs on Wednesday in Elgeyo Marakwet.

Brian Kibet was going home to collect school fees when he was attacked by the stray dogs. Members of the public ran to his help and rushed him to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival at the Iten County Hospital.

One of the residents, Ben Kipchumba said that they found the dogs viciously attacking the boy and chased them away but it was too late.

This is the second such story in less than a month after stray dogs mauled former Nyeri Governer Nderitu Gachagua’s two-year-old grandson in Nyeri town.
