Two suspected cattle thieves were earlier today treated to the wrath of a mob after they were ambushed after stealing livestock in Mwitoti Village of Mumias East Sub-county, Kakamega County.
The two, Mr. Hussein Murungu, 32, and Bosco Juma, 58, were cornered by a mob in Mwitoti with two sheep while driving towards Mumias town from the home of Mr. Hassan Were, from the neighboring Eluche Village, at around 3 am.
The agitated mob, which had been alerted by Mr. Were, burned their car to ashes after lynching them to death.
“I heard a commotion from the animal shed, and when I peeped through the window, I saw strange people in the compound. I alerted my neighbors through the phone before I raised the alarm,” said Mr. Were, as reported by Nation.
The two men are well-known businessmen in Mumias town who deal in selling roasted chicken and are suspected to be members of a gang of thieves terrorizing the area.
