Man Drops Dead in Market

A 42- year- old man collapsed and died at Mukuyuni market, Kaiti Sub County on Sunday evening.
According to police reports Boniface Wambua, 42, collapsed at the market at around 6.20 pm and was pronounced dead at the Mukuyuni sub county hospital where he had been rushed for treatment.
County Police Commander Joseph Ole Naipeyan said the cause of the death could not be established but the body was moved to the County Referral Hospital for postmortem examination.
Ole Naipeyan said police opened an inquest into the incident.
Elsewhere, police on sunday night arrested two lorry drivers along the Kitui-Kibwezi road for flouting the nationwide 7pm-5am curfew.
The police commander said the drivers identified as Duncan Koome and Phineas Muriithi were intercepted around 9.30pm while ferrying Miraa and muguka.
“They were travelling from Meru and the consignment was headed to Kilifi, through Mombasa,” said Ole Naipeyan.
The two were detained at the Kibwezi police station and will be arraigned in court later today.
