Tussle over land ends tragically

Police remove body of 82-year-old granny who was murdered by her son Edwin Losepish in Maralal, Samburu

A mother-son dispute ended tragically after the 35-year-old man proceeded to kill the 82-year-old grandmother in cold blood.

The shocking incident took place in Lokuto village, Maralal in Samburu County at around 5 am on Saturday morning.

Mr Edwin Kipande Losepish is alleged to have had an altercation with his mother, Julieta Amanikor, over land.

Nyumba Kumi chairman in the area Mr Sasan Lenakinong’iro reasoned that Losepish may have been drunk when the incident happened.

He further called for arrest of the suspect who had fled the scene before police arrived.

One of Julieta's grandsons told reporters that they heard the fracas from a different house but they did not expect their grandmother would be killed.

"We were in a separate house where we heard the suspect quarrelling with grandmother as jerrycans fell down. Neighbours could hear the noise but nobody believed he could kill our grandmother," the grandson stated.
