A 38-year-old man from Ebwambwa Village in Lurambi, Kakamega County was on Tuesday, May 9, arrested after he attempted to kill his mother over a land dispute.
The suspect, Samson Wasiche, had unsuccessfully tried to convince his mother, Salome Atsitsa, into selling a parcel of land.
Mr Wasiche then threatened to cut his mother into pieces using a machete after she refused to allow him sell the piece of land. Ms Atsitsa fled the scene before her son could attack her.
Mr Wasiche had already dug up a grave near his mother’s home.
Ms Atsitsa says her son, who is a drug addict, has – in the past – been in and out of jail.
