In Summary
  • The man attacked his wife and son after a disagreement.

A man was lynched on Wednesday afternoon for attacking his 26-year-old wife and killing their three-month-old son over a disagreement.

The 40-year-old man had locked himself up with his newly wedded wife and their son in their house at Ngoluni Market in Makueni County, before attacking his family.


Mbooni East OCPD Peter Njeru said the man and his wife had been quarrelling and the man chopped off the woman’s right hand.

"He then transferred his anger to his three-month-old son, whom he cut on the forehead, gorging out an eye, before he set their rented house on fire with the intent to end all their lives," added Mr Njeru.
