Mrs Sindege Manyaka was at home on Sunday feeding her chickens when a group of irate youths stormed her homestead in Morero village, Marani sub-county, Kisii County, demanding to know why she bewitched a 17-year-old boy.

Her pleas fell on deaf ears as the youths brandishing pangas, hoes and axes dragged her to the playground of Nyagonyi Primary School. Her son, Mr Christopher Mayaka, who tried to help his mother was cut on the rear part of his head and gave in.

“She pleaded for mercy and even tried to bargain for her life with the little money she had after selling her cow so that she could go to the hospital. Her cries fell on deaf ears as the youth were only baying for her blood,” said Ms Beatrice Chepkorir, who witnessed the macabre killing of her mother-in-law.

Ms Chepkorir further added that the attackers made away with Ksh20,000 the 83-year-old had on her - the same amount she had offered to give them to spare her life.

Four of the attackers have since been arrested and have been detained for 10 more days to allow for thorough investigations.
