A boy was killed by the irate mother for allegedly stealing Ksh20 at lower Kipkaren village, Ng’enyilel location, bordering Kakamega and Uasin gishu Counties. According to the area chief, Sammy Tororei, a 32 year old woman, Jennifer Mutenyo, went berserk upon learning that the money was missing on Wednesday evening.
Fearing the wrath of his enraged mother, the 11-year-old took off and slept in the neighborhood surfacing on Thursday morning to get ready for school.
But before he left the mother pounced with a wooden plank hitting him several times killing him.
The body of the class one pupil at Lower Kipkaren Primary School was found by suspicious neighbours who stormed the house. It was covered with a blanket. “I uncovered him and when I touched his body it was cold and I took it outside only to discover that he was dead,” said Mrs. Carolyne Barsa, a neighbor.
The residents pounced on the woman, baying for her blood but she was rescued by members of Nyumba Kumi who frog matched her to Kipkaren Administration Police Camp while the body was removed to Chebaiywa mortuary for post mortem.
