49-year-old man is being detained by police in Rumuruti, Laikipia West on suspicion of fatally stabbing his son.
Following dispute, the Gatundia villager is charged with murdering his 23-year-old son.

“The two had disagreed over an unknown issue when the suspect picked a knife and stabbed his son in the stomach. The boy died on spot due to excessive bleeding,” said Laikipia West Sub-County Police Commander Geoffrey Mang’era.

The suspect narrowly avoided being lynched by enraged locals, according to the police boss.

“The suspect was rescued from irate members of the public by the police who had visited the scene. They escorted him to Rumuruti Sub-County Hospital for treatment,” he added.

A blood-stained knife, according to Mr. Mang’era, was discovered at the site and was kept as an exhibit. It will be shown in court once the suspect is arraigned.

“Murder charges will be preferred against the suspect once police are done with investigations,” he said.

The body of the victim was moved to Nyahururu County Referral Hospital mortuary.
