Kitengela Slain Brothers Belongings Burned
Lucy Wanjiru, the mother of the Kitengela slain brothers, made a bonfire lynching all their belongings hoping to cauterize her grief and her anger.
“Burning my Fred and Victor’s belongings didn’t kill the pain, only justice can do that,” Lucy told the Star in an interview. She flew back from the UK when she heard about their deaths on Sunday, August 7.
The brothers were killed after a group of armed villagers mistook them for castle rustlers
One man has been arrested and police are investigating reports that hundreds of men swore an oath not to reveal the names of the other killers and accomplices.
The victims were brothers Fred Mureithi, 30, a DJ, and mechanic Victor Mwangi, 25, and their cousins Mike George, 29, and Nicholas Musa, 28.
Both Fred and Victor ran businesses. Livestock theft is rampant in Isinya sub-county. Only one man has been arrested but investigations are still ongoing.
