Man slashes his father to death over 4kg of beans

The man slashed his father several times on the head and face

It is reported that the suspect killed Stephen Masinde by slashing him several times on the head and face.


His sister told journalists that she is the one who had given the beans to her father to sell.

"When he saw my father with the beans, he asked him where he was taking them but my father did not reply, that is when he attacked him," she said.

She said their mother tried to intervene, but her furious brother slashed their father to death.


The suspect's twin brother said he was shocked as the two had not had serious issues before.

"I had gone to work in the morning as usual when I was called back and told my father had been killed by my brother who is hardly here at home as he spends most of his time in Eldoret town working," the brother said.

Kiminini police took the body to Kiminini hospital morgue.
