Man stabs brother to death in Sipili

By David Kiarie and Maureen Kiarahu

A youthful man from Ririchua village in Sipili division died this morning following a fight with his brother.
The man who was only identified as Morgan is said to have succumbed to serious injuries inflicted on his body with a knife by his younger brother during the quarrel.

According to reliable sources in the village, the deceased in his mid 20s picked a quarrel with his brother on Sunday night after he and his mother demanded to know where his younger brother had spent on Saturday night.

The assailant is said to have been irritated by repeated questions from both his mother and the elder brother and started exchanging bitter words with the two.

As the family quarrel continued, the assailant dashed for a kitchen knife and stabbed his brother on the ribs and on the hand as the mother watched helplessly.

The deceased was then rushed to a health facility in Sipili where his wounds were dressed before being referred to Nyahururu district hospital for specialized treatment.

 He however succumbed to the injuries few hours after being admitted at the hospital.

Laikipia Rural Voices could not establish whether the assailant had been arrested by the time of publishing this story.
