Police in Homa Bay are looking for some youths who lynched two men at Kolal A village in Kabondo kasipul constituency. The youths who were in acting a mob killed Kennedy Omondi, 32, and Moi Omondi, 29 by stoning and hitting them with crude weapons to death. The deceased were accused of perpetrating theft of chicken and other household items in the village. Their bodies were separately abandoned in a thicket near Chabera market along Oyugis-Kisumu road.

 

Villagers said the two men have been collaborating to carry-out the unlawful act. “Residents have directed their accusing fingers to the two on a number of items they lose through thefts. They do disappear and return after situation is calm,” a villager said. Speaking to journalists on Sunday, an elder Silvano Adembe said the two deceased have also been accused raping women in the village when they are drunk.

 

Ademba said angry mob killed the two when they resurfaced following their disappearance after being accused of raping a woman three months ago. “Many women nowadays live in fear of being raped after some of them underwent the ordeal,” Ademba said. Homa Bay County Police commander Esther Seroney said the two died of injuries they sustained during the beatings. “We’re looking for youths who mobilised residents and killed the suspects.

They should report suspects to police for investigations instead of killing them,” Seroney said.

The police officer said they are also investigating reasons behind the killing of the two men. She said nobody has recorded statement over the killing of the suspects.
Both the deceased bodies were moved to Rachuonyo level 4 Hospital mortuary in Oyugis
