The murder

According to The Standard, one of the sons had confronted the deceased on Sunday and confiscated his phone. At around 1:30 am on Monday the two, launched an attack on the deceased who was at their mother’s house.

When the mother asked for help from her neighbors, they were unwilling to get involved since Mr. Kivutha had already sustained very serious injuries. His body would later be found dumped in Mbukuni with deep head and hands injuries.

The three suspects are being held at the Kilome Police station to aid in the investigation of the murder.

 The deceased body has since been transferred to Kilungu hospital mortuary.
