Man stabs brother to death for insulting him


Police in Kirinyaga County have launched a man hunt for a 39-year-old man who stabbed his brother to death in Mwiboni village, Gichugu Constituency.

According to the siblings’ father Martin Njine, his elder son Mathew Njuki came home drunk at around 2am and confronted his brother Anthony Muriithi.

Njuki is reported to have insulted his brother accusing him of being unable to sire children.

That is when Muriithi grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him to death.

“I was shocked to see my cousin Mathew Njuki lying in a pool of blood in the compound,” their cousin John Mwaniki said.

Gichugu OCPD Anthony Mbogo said a search was underway for the suspect who fled after the incident.
