Two men are being held at a police station after allegedly killing their brother over a Sh50 debt on Friday in Misikhu in Webuye East, Bungoma County.
Nickson Matumbai, 61, is said to have been stabbed to death after a quarrel ensued between him and his 33-year-old brother and 50-year-old cousin.
The two allegedly used blunt objects and a knife after returning home from a drinking spree at a local illicit brew den.
The incident has been confirmed by Webuye East police boss Martha Ngetich, who was briefed by Misikhu Location chief John Musamali.
“The victim’s body had deep cuts on the lower chin and forehead. Police recovered a blood-stained panga and a walking stick from the murder scene,” the police boss said.
Matumbai’s body is lying at the Webuye County Hospital mortuary.
