15 houses burnt down after man gets killed in fight over teenage girl

Fifteen houses in Emukaya Village, Navakholo Constituency in Kakamega County were on Thursday night burnt down by irate residents, who were protesting the killing of a 22-year-old man.

Kevin Mutenyo was stabbed to death while
fighting over a 16-year-old girl at a “disco matanga” last Monday.

The irate group, comprising tens of boda
boda operators, stormed the homes of the suspects, located 4 kilometres from
the death scene, and set 15 houses on fire. The aggrieved group claimed that
police officers were yet to take any lawful action against the suspects despite
their identities known.

The protesters on Thursday evening carried
Mutenyo’s body on their shoulders from a local morgue and marched with it on
the Shisiru-Lurambi route, saying they were grieving their friend according to
local traditions.

Attempts by police officers to disperse the
group using teargas, bore no fruit as the protesters proceeded with their
journey.
