The 78-year-old man only identified as Wanjala and his daughter Dina Nasike, were beaten to death in separate incidents after being accused of bewitching the teenager. The Kenyans reported that the man died after being hit with blunt objects while his daughter was found a few metres away lifeless.

According to neighbours, the two had uttered words which allegedly caused the death of 12-year-old Amos Wanjala, who developed weird complications and died a week after undergoing circumcision.

“Wanjala developed complications three days later and was rushed to Bungoma referral hospital and then to Moi Hospital in Eldoret. Doctors said that the boy was not sick after tests were done,” claimed one of the residents.

The wife of the deceased was also rescued from the mob which had associated her with the same witchcraft accusations. The woman was taken to the area police camp for protection.

Villagers alleged that it was not the first time the three had used charms to kill enemies, claims that were strongly refuted by a brother to the slain man. Addressing journalists after the incident, area parliamentary aspirant Moses Nandalwe cautioned residents against the law into their own hands.

“If you are suspecting on any allegations including witchcraft or any other crime, just report the matter to authorities rather than take law in your hands,” said Nandalwe.
