Drama ensued in Syprus village in Kapomboni location, Kwanza Subcounty in Trans-nzoia county after two police reservists opened fire and shot one civilian dead which prompted area residents to swing to action.
It is still not clear what made the reservist shoot the civilian an action that is understood to have angered the residents who were now bloodthirsty and sought justice for the fallen civilian.
The irate crowd made their way towards the motor vehicle that was being used by the reservists for their patrol duties and demanded answers from the now visibly shaken duo who were now aware they were in deep trouble.
The two reservists took a clean pair of heels as the mob was now baying for their blood and scampered for safety with the crowd in hot pursuit.
The crowd then resorted to torching their motor vehicle amid calls from area residents to those in authority demanding justice with this latest incident on the eve of men in uniform being in the spotlight for excessive use of force when handling the citizens.
