A middle-aged man from Kipsomba, Uasin Gishu County has been arrested after he allegedly killed his younger brother for serving him ugali and sukuma wiki, instead of meat.
Area MCA Mary Goretti said the suspect arrived home Monday night after a drinking spree and ordered the boy, a Class Five pupil, to serve him supper.
“When the suspect arrived home, he asked his younger brother to serve him food. He was given ugali and sukuma wiki, but he insisted he wanted beef. The boy told him there was no meat. He got infuriated and knocked the back of the boy’s head. The boy collapsed and was pronounced dead on arrival at a Uasin Gishu hospital,” said Ms Goretti.
