Son Kills Father

Police in Nyamira North Sub County are pursuing a youth who hacked his father dead in their tea plantation farm.
Egetonto Sub Location assistant chief, Jones Kea while confirming the incident to KNA said father and son had previously been wrangling in connection with land and property ownership.
“Residents of the said area were shocked when George Nyandika, aged 22 years, set upon his 55-year-old father Isaac Mogaka Manyuru with a panga yesterday at around 9 .00 in the morning after a brief quarrel in their tea farm on what neighbours said to be a land and property ownership disagreement,” Mr. Kea said.
“When I responded to a distress call from my village elder at Bombere Kiabora village I immediately informed the Sub County OCS who also visited the scene and we found the lifeless body of Isaac Mogaka in his tea plantation with deep cuts on his head, neck and right hand,” the administrator explained.
He further revealed that the panga which George used to commit the heinous act was recovered at the scene though he had already escaped.
“The OCS promised to hunt for the murderer to ensure he faces the law and appealed to members of the public to volunteer information on his whereabouts and promised that the information will be treated with confidentiality.
Manyuru’s remains were taken to Nyamira Teaching and Referral Hospital to await a postmortem examination.
