The Friday incident took place in Sisiya Village, Kapchorwa District.

The Police Spokesperson, Mr Rogers Taitika confirmed the arrests.

Investigations launched

“We have arrested them for killing their father and we have launched investigations into the matter,” Mr Taitika said.

He said the suspects who are currently detained at the Police Station would be charged with murder.

“Our preliminary investigations indicate that they killed the deceased for marrying a second wife. The suspects will be paraded in courts of law,” he said.
