Two men kill their elder brother after assaulting their mother over food
Two men, Pascaliano Odhiambo, 29, and Bonventure Ouma, 19, were arrested in Kenya for attacking their elder brother to the point of death after responding to a distress call from their mother.
It was gathered that the deceased identified as Juma had returned home around 8:00 pm drunk, and demanded for food from their mother. When told that food was not ready, he descended on his helpless mother with blows and kicks leaving her wailing in despair, for her dear life.
The screams of the woman drove his brothers mercilessly to beat him before they retired to bed.
Juma’s mother woke up on Thursday, September 23, and walked towards his house to check on him, despite having been assaulted by him the previous night. After finding him dead on the doorstep of his house, with a deep cut inflicted on his head and slightly above the left ear, she alerted the local authorities who called in detectives based in Butula, Busia county.
At the scene of the assassination were found a machete, jembe, and a rungu believed to be the murder weapons, documented and collected by the personnel of the crime scene in Busia. This led to the arrest of the two brothers who have been placed in custody at the Bumala police station for trial and apprehension.
