Angry students at Maseno University main campus in Kisumu County lynched a suspected thief on Thursday, October 13.
The suspect, who was seen loitering around the students’ hostels Thursday evening, was beaten to death on suspicion that he was part of a three-member gang which had been stealing laptops and other property from the learners.
Confirming the incident to eDaily, Kisumu West OCPD, Wilson Mwakio, said the students killed the suspect before officers could arrive at the scene.
The deceased was taken to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga mortuary pending an autopsy.
