BY ALY ABICH IN HOMA BAY COUNTY.
A 31-year-old man from Ayoro Village in Rachuonyo South, Homa Bay County has been killed after he allegedly stole eight chickens from a neighbour.
Felix Odongo was on Friday morning cornered at Owade bridge near Oyugis Town by boda boda riders, who asked him to show the content of a gunia he was carrying. Eight chickens were found in the sack, and Odongo was at pains explaining where he got the poultry.
The boda boda riders immediately started hurling stones and other blunt objects at him. They only stopped attacking Odongo when he lay motionless on the ground.
Odongo died while being rushed to hospital in Oyugis Town.
Homa Bay County police commander Marius Tum confirmed the incident.
Odongo’s body was moved to Rachuonyo Hospital mortuary.
