A woman in Kisii County paid two men Ksh.5,000 each to assassinate her sister-in-law after a row over a piece of land.
The men were paid a deposit of Ksh.3,000 with the balance promised after proof of death.
According to the victim, Maureen Chebet, she received credible intelligence that a plot to have her murdered had allegedly been planned by her sister-in-law over a disputed family property, prompting her to report the incident at Kisii Central Police Station.
The two suspects 46-year-old William Tengeya and 35-year-old Albert Mauti were arraigned in Kisii and charged with the attempted murder of Maureen Chebet. They were however later released on a Ksh.10,000 cash bail each.
