Police in Transmara are investigating the gruesome murders of four people at Sugubo village in Nyamache.
Led by the area OCPD Kipkulei Kipkemoi, the victims were murdered following long-standing land disputes within James Kerandi's family, which took the attention of irate villagers a week ago.
Three houses were burned by charged villagers in addition to destruction of unknown amount of property.
Enraged locals used crude weapons, including fork jembes, arrows and machetes, to lynch the three.
A charred body was later recovered after being burnt to ashes inside one of the three houses.
The police are now tracing for seventeen suspects linked to the murder of the four victims.
Preliminary investigations revealed two siblings identified as James Kerandi Omwenga and his elder brother David Mogire Omwenga had a land tussle which made head to court since 2000 after the latter died.
He said Mogire’s sons got a court ruling in 2020 to evict Kerandi from the land, adding he lost his life on Thursday, March 2, prompting the sons to go back to the land to build a house to bury him.
Among the four killed were three workers identified as; Emmanuel Nyakundi, Daniel Nyakwara, and Amos Omwoyo and the fourth victim was identified as Dunston Makori (whose body was retrieved from the burnt house) and transferred to Nyamache sub-county hospital mortuary to await an autopsy.
