A Form Two student from Kawap area in Samburu County is on the run after he beat up his father for asking him to stop seducing a neighbour’s teenage daughter.
The 17-year-old student is even in more hot soup for fatally stabbing another teenage boy, who he got into a fight with on Friday.
Area chief Sammy Lothuru says the boy’s victim, who was stabbed in the chest, died while being taken to Samburu County Referral Hospital. The deceased is being preserved at the health facility.
The suspect, a learner at Baragoi High School, killed his victim as the deceased’s brother watched helplessly, said Mr Lothuru.
The student had earlier Friday assaulted his father for asking him to terminate his romantic interest in their neighbour’s teenage daughter, who is not enrolled in school.
“The suspect was seducing his neighbour’s daughter, who seemingly rejected his advances and reported him to her father. The girl’s father, thereafter, approached the boy’s father to ask him to speak to his son. That was when the suspect’s father warned him against pursuing the girl. Angered by his dad’s declaration, the boy beat the old man up,” said Mr Lothuru.
The 17-year-old has since fled his parents’ home. Police say they are looking for him.
