Kiambu bachelor stoned to death in mistaken identity

There was drama in Kimba market in Kiambu County after a 3 year old child went missing. A man who was with the child was stoned by an angry mob which included his neighbors after what police say might have been misjudgment by the mother of the 3 year old child.

The 35 year old man was stoned by the irate mob when the mother of the girl child noticed that the daughter was not with her age mates playing outside. Her frantic search led her to a neighbors house where she found the little girl seated on the deceased bed. This aroused curiosity on the mother's side and she immediately raised an alarm which attracted fellow neighbors. According to sources the man who is a bachelor had offered the girl lunch and due to lack of furniture in the house he sat her on the bed.

The irate residents descended on the hapless suspect with sticks, stones and logs killing him in the process. The police from Tinganga police post who came to pick up the body castigated the residents for taking the law into their own hands instead of letting the police handle the case.
