Man killed with an axe in Tharaka Nithi over land

They also beat him with iron rods and cut him with a panga

A lady who identified herself as his daughter said that she heard screams and upon rushing to the direction the voices were coming from, she saw her father being beaten by his relatives with his hands tied together.


“I tried to plead with them to stop beating my father but they continued beating him with rods and cutting him with a panga,” said the daughter.

She added that one of the assailants attacked her father with an axe at the back of his head and he collapsed.

Wrong grave

“I saw my dad lie unconsciously on the ground. I decided to take his shoes that had fallen off but one of them threatened to kill me too,” she added.

She said the attackers went on and buried her father’s body in a grave that had been dug for his cousin who died a week ago.
